Greetings from the Abyss

One of my hobbies is water colors. I've used YouTube and Pinterest to go from blobs to backgrounds  to actual scenes. My newest endeavor is to merge water colors with digital crafting to create a hybrid canvas like the one above.
I painted the underwater scene and then added images from a digital set called Sea Life from Ike's Art. 
The end result reminds me of the song The Beautiful Briny from the Disney movie Bedknobs & Broomsticks. The characters floating along the bottom of the sea, passing and meeting all manner of sea creatures, some of which are featured in my hybrid canvas above.
My DT project fits perfectly with this fortnight's optional theme of "The Abyss" that's offered by Ike's World Challenge Blog. The theme encompasses anything under the sea or in the ocean, like my jelly fish, sea turtle, crab, sea horse, star fish and, of course, fish! Since our planet is covered by more water than land, that's a lot of inspiration for your chance to win free digis from Ike's store, so why not take the plunge and link your project today!

That is so beautiful and what a clever way to mix the two elements :-) I remember that film and have got the song in my head now :-D
Thank you for making this for me at IWC.
