Copy Cat...

This card was for the "Copy Cat" challenge at Digi Darla.  They offered a freebie of a ship and everyone had to use that image in their design.  Sounded like fun to see what everyone does with the exact same image!  BUT, I was too late to get it in the challenge - heavy sigh.

I used a Spotlight technique that suggests someone using a scope to see the ship - simply done by printing two copies and punching a circle from one of them to color.  I used Copics to color  it & then edged the circle with a dark grey.  The hard part was trying to get it perfectly lined up with the base image and glued down.  The final touch was using whiteout as foam on the top of the waves.  The inside was decorated with the same matting.
