Since I had the ink creating my background was easy following Tim's instructions. For the sea life I used the Life's A Beach cartridge from Cricut. I used my distress inks to color them, and added Stickles for a little bling. I used sandpaper for the ocean floor, and since I didn't have an embossing folder that I liked for bubbles I used Skittles from Double Click Connections. I've had these in my stash haven't used them until now, and I just love the way they look.
Thanks for a great tag Tim! I can't wait for month.
