I Love Promarkers DT Card - Your Favourite Colours

It's challenge time once again over at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Your Favourite Colours".  Our sponsor this time is Lili of the Valley who are offering a voucher to our winner.
My favourite colour is orange, but my favourite colour combo is pink and green, I even got married in it!
To create the background, I masked off the stamped image and applied Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean, giving it a spritz of water after application to give a splodgy look.  The image has, of course, been coloured with Promarkers. I highlighted the shells and starfish with Star Dust Stickles and added some Liquid Pearls for bubbles.
The papers are a mix of Papermania and Fancy Pants and I used my favourite Martha Stewart lace border punch.
I added an organza pink spotty ribbon and a giant bow with a fish charm dangling down from it and created a starfish embellishment by die cutting and scoring a star shape with an Xcut die, then adding some blobs of Liquid Pearls along the ridges.  The seaweed was made with a Spellbinders die.  The final touches are some dew drops and gems.
