Yup, you read it correctly!! Thats SEVEN digi's going to the winner. Makes me want to enter my own challenge!! :-)
So onto this weeks challenge which is
We thought with it being mid July and the summer holidays approaching, we would love to see your interpretations of the sea. It could be a marine look or the beach or whatever reminds you of being by/under the sea, and to help you along the way, our lovely Design Team have been super busy again.

Jacqui M: I decided to make a concertina card for this challenge, the images I hand drew just for this challenge. The DP are a mix of Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby and free polka dot papers from Simply Homemade Magazine. I coloured the images with Promarkers and used self adhesive gems for the bubbles. The sentiments were Pink Petticoat free with Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine (old issue).

Helen: For this card, I've used a lovely digi image from Bugaboo, which has been printed onto Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock and edged with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks.  
I came across this lovely glazed water paper in my local craft shop and had to buy it as I knew this challenge was coming up!  I've coloured in the image with Stampin' Up! stampin write markers, and highlighted the fish, heart, and the oxygen tank with a Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen in clear glitter sparkle.  For the bubbles, I have added some little table decoration gems from my stash, then I've added a wave from K & Co.

Jacqui H: I stamped the mermaid image onto a postcard and coloured with promarkers. Used glitter glue for the border. I matt and layered tonal blues and used some seaside themed embellishments and a toned ribbon.

Steph: I downloaded my Crab from Bugaboo Stamps and printed 3 off. I coloured them all with promarkers and cut them out. I layered them up 'Decoupage' style and mounted the topper onto blue paper by NitWits. I drew bubbles to the left side of the card and added glitter and added the topper to the card. I added glitter to the crab image and made the greeting freehand, which was also mounted onto blue NitWits paper. I attached that with a 3D foam pad and added gems to finish.

Josie: I had already bought a digi stamp when I saw this was one of our themes, and then I found out the lovely Bugaboo was sponsoring us! So I made a card from the original digi, and bought another digi from Bugaboo and made a book mark! I'm keeping the book mark for myself! :)
I coloured both images with pro markers. For the card I found some lovely Basic Grey papers and matted and layered with my most fave turquoise glitter film. I then edged the image with glossy accent and covered some papermania glitter which matches perfectly. I had some stickers which I placed next to the image. I had these mini star fish embellishments which I coloured with peach pro marker and covered in glossy accents and sprinkled with a touch of glitter. I then used papermania adhesive irridescent glimmer dots to look like bubbles. For the book mark I did pretty much the same thing but threaded some mini bead of all different shades of the sea.

Shelby  I inked this so cute it's edible digi with my copics.  I used some Basic Grey papers from their Lauderdale collection and used magic mesh to try and create a fishing net effect.  I also used some liquid applique to create wave caps.  I put some glitter on the applique while it was still wet to give it some shimmer.  The cute little sentiment is a chipboard sentiment from Me&My Big Ideas.
