I started with the background using my aquamarkers again and scribbling them on to a scrap piece of cellophane and pressing down on to the paper. Being clear I can see exactly where I am layering my colours and doodles. When doing a thin squiggle I usually breathe on the cellophane first before transferring the ink to the paper. Sometimes the ink will pool slightly and lines aren't always complete, but I like that. Spritzing gives different effects and the colour spreads out more.I photographed my piece and then using Craft Artist software I added the under the sea themed elements, did some digital blending and added a colour burn effect using an additional grungy looking image made from a coffee packet (see* further down). The kit is Fantasy Mermaids by Daisytrail. The font used for quote is called '1942 report'.

Then I changed the effect I used on the coffee foil from 'colour burn' to 'multiply' to see what happened - which one do you prefer? I think I like the main one above best.
