Under the sea... #5 D.O. challenge

Ariel, listen to me
The human world, it's a mess
Life under the sea

Is better than anything they got up there

Ariel, ascolta:
Il mondo degli umani è un pasticcio,
La vita sotto il mare
E' meglio di ogni cosa abbiano lassù!

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else's lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake

Le alghe del tuo vicino
Ti sembran più verdi sai
Vorresti andar sulla terra
Non sai che gran sbaglio fai

Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin' for?

Se poi ti guardassi intorno
Vedresti che il nostro mar
E' pieno di meraviglie
Che altro tu vuoi di più?!

Under the sea, under the sea
Darlin' it's better down where it's wetter
Take it from me.
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devoting full time to floating
Under the sea

In fondo al mar, In fondo al mar
Tutto bagnato
E' molto meglio credi a me.
Quelli lassù che sgobbano
Sotto quel sole svengono
Mentre qua sotto ce la spassiamo
In fondo al mar!

~~~~~~~~

No, I'm not crazy guys, I'm sorry, maybe another time, ok? :D Ahahah I was carried away by famous The Little Marmaid's song to introduce my last work... Ok, I'm myself now, we can continue (ps. while I was writing, I sang it cheerfully, I must admit, and I know that you did the same too, right?!).
Here I am with new card for Deep Ocean's fifth challenge... and we are or not an ocean?!?! So this time the superb chosen theme is "SEA". Justly. The first thing in my mind thinking about sea is obviusly the mermaids: because I love these magical creatures, because I dream to meet once, because thinking about I travel with my fancy around marine landscapes, because... In a word, they're fantastic!!

~

No, non sono impazzita ragazzi, sono spiacente, magari un'altra volta, ok?! :D Ahahah Mi sono fatta trascinare dalla famosa canzone della Sirenetta così da potervi introdurre il mio ultimo lavoro... Ok, sono tornata me stessa adesso, possiamo continuare (ps. mentre la scrivevo me la sono cantata allegramente, devo ammetterlo, e so che anche ognuno di voi l'ha fatto, ammettetelo!!).
Eccomi con la nuova card per il quinto challenge di Deep Ocean...
e siamo o non siamo un oceano?!?! Quindi stavolta il favoloso tema scelto è "MARE". Giustamente. La prima cosa che mi passa nella mente pensando al mare sono ovviamente le sirene: perchè amo queste magiche creature, perchè sogno di conoscerne una, perchè pensando a loro viaggio con l'immaginazione in paesaggi marini, perchè... Insomma, sono fantastiche!!

This is my card / Ecco la mia card:


The layout is more simple than last cards, but I like the idea to make it in this "simple" way, so the attention can be concentrated on two fantastic characters in the centr... They're so sweet, really beautiful: useless tell that I went crazy for colour them, and for the chromatic choice the paper behind helped me, with orange, blu-green and grey/brown, they're amazing together, one let bright the other in a fantastic manner!!

~

Il layout è più semplice rispetto alle ultime card fatte, ma mi piaceva l'idea di realizzarlo così "semplice", in modo che l'attenzione sia concentrata sui due fantastici personaggi al centro... Sono così dolci, davvero bellissimi: inutile dire che mi sono divertita da matti a colorarli, e per la scelta cromatica mi sono aiutata con la carta di sfondo, scegliendo arancione, turchese e grigio/marrone, sono splendidi insieme abbinati, l'uno fa risaltare l'altro in maniera strepitosa!!


I know you have a sharp eyesight, but I tell the same: the hair and tail colours are complementary and opposite, so the sentiment under is completely true: ONE COMPLETE THE OTHER IN AN UNIQUE, SIMPLE, MAGICAL, SWEET WAY... oooh is so romantic!!
Last thing and then you can go: I put some little decorative rocks on the bottom to remember ocean bed... so inspiring, isn't this?

~

Lo so che avete una super vista, ma ve lo dirò lo stesso: i colori dei capell e della coda sono complementari e opposti, quindi la frase sotto è completamente vera: UNO COMPLETA L'ALTRO IN UN'UNICO, SEMPLICE, MAGICO, DOLCE MODO... oooh è così romantico!!
Un'ultima cosa e poi potete andare: ho messo alcuni sassolini decorativi sul basso per ricordare il fondale marino... davvero ispiranti, non è così!?



Materiali/Tools
stamps:
Some Odd Girl digital stamp MerMae and Merman Kody
details:
some little decorative rocks, Basic Grey grey and torquoise pearls, gems, ribbon, digital sentiment by me, plastic web and copics for the colouring.

  3. ciao amica!
    devo ammetterlo, devo ammetterlo....la ho cantata tutta ancora prima di leggere che mentre la scrivevi la hai cantata anche tu!!!
    eh, già sono stato anche io della generatione sirenetto :P

    bellissima card, come ti ho detto (il mio naso è abbastanza grande così) la colorazione mi fa impazzire e penso che se tu avessi aggiunto particolari elaborati avrebbe fatto troppa confusione....quindi non dire che è vuota!!!!
    i sassolini sono il pezzo forte di questa card....non ci avrei mai pensato e ogni volta che vedo una tua card rimprovero il mio cervellino di non averci pensato a uno dei tuoi particolari (me ne basterebbe uno,dico.)

    ti abbraccio, ele!

  8. Ciao Elena, bellissima card, come sempre, anche semplice così: i timbri sono colorati talmente bene che sarebbero bastati solo quelli! Ho anch'io Mer-Mae, l'ho preso alla some odd quella volta e oggi sono finalmente riuscita a stamparla sulla carta di BA! Se riesco volevo usarlo anche io per partecipare al challenge del deep ocean, spero non ti spiaccia...! Tanto quando ti arrivo?!!!
    Un grande abbraccio, Fra.

    p.s.: sono convinta di sapere qual è la grande notizia...quando torno dalla spesa spero di trovarla pubblicata!
