Simon Says - Anything Goes!

I started messing about with this canvas yesterday but once I'd got it sprayed wasn't really sure what to do next, so put it to one side.

This morning I saw that the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, is "anything goes" so I attacked it tonight with renewed vigour! And some stencils....

The canvas is sprayed with Dylusions (turquoise and yellow) and I used some distress inks and the chicken wire stencil, and then today added the fish - again with distress inks in various colours.  Used a white pen to highlight the bubbles.  I think it probably needs some words, but I don't think I have anything suitable...

Under Da SEA! Love this! Again! Especially those little air bubbles and I never would have thought to add orange to water but it really works and looks effective!

Gosh! Love the canvas! The colours are really striking and just perfect for 'underwater'!!! I wonder what words you could add...? Don't know... will ponder and let you know if anything strikes... though it looks pretty perfect as it is!
