Sunrise over the sea

I'm in love with Hannah Lynn's art. I just recently discovered her digital images, and I'm awe-struck. This is Atlantis Mermaid. I have painted her with Stickles and acrylic paint (golden and red for the hair, golden and green for her clothing). The frame was painted with a mix of Stickles and nail polish. If you take a closer look at the left lower corner, you can see some water (in a yellow tone). It was part of a photo of a sea during sunrise. The sky is another part of that photo which I cut into pieces to fit my card.

Look in travel brochures and magazines for pictures of nature.
It could be a sky with interesting looking clouds, or a strange-looking bush.
What you are going to do with your findings is this: use it for cardmaking.
Yes! Cut out that fascinating sky or the white fluffy clouds.
I have in-cooperated nature images from a travel brouchure in this card. 

I have submitted this card to the following:
