Aloha Memories withTiddly Inks

I created this little guy for the Tiddly Inks Take it Easel-y Challenge  This adorable image brought back fond memories of Hubby's snorkeling adventure on our own little Island Adventure way back in 1989.  Taking care to avoid his above water ears, I used distressed inks for the sky (broken china) & water (peacock feathers) prior to coloring the image with assorted Spectrum Noir & Kaiser Fusion markers.  Love how the distress inks created that under water aqua tone.

Since it was a little difficult to do the card justice with my IPhone camera I added a few close ups of the various embellishments below.  Hope you enjoy my Aloha Memories
