Mermaid’s “Hello”

Hello!! Here is my latest DT inspiration for the Sheepski Designs Facebook challenge.  The challenges are always anything goes, but we’ve now started to add optional themes to help get your creative juices flowing.  This month, it’s Sparkle and Shine.  I used the beautiful Hello image, by Andrea at Sheepski Designs.  For a discount on this, or any other image you may want to purchase, I have a discount code for you to use:


After coloring the image with my Prismacolor pencils, I found some glitter paper, and some design paper with a subtle print and began laying out the card according to the current sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

I die cut the circles to show the glitter CS underneath, edged them in silver glitter glue, and put some clear acetate over the openings.  Then I raised the top layer with some foam dots, and attached the little fish behind the windows with thread, so they “swim” when you move the card.  Some cheesecloth and die cut shells, and a glittery sentiment on a white banner, finish this card off.

I’d like to enter this in the following:

Happiness Is….

I’m on a bit of a roll here…getting things done and blogged (Housework does NOT count when your on vacation!!!).  This little sweetie is from Molly Harrison.  After coloring the image up with my SN markers, I went about adding a ton of bubbles for the background.  Love the effect, but about half way though, I was wishing I’d taken it a bit easier when I’d started, lol.  I thought this image was perfect for a wine bottle tag.  I kept the design fairly simple, with some bling and a perfect little sentiment.  It’s nice to have a few of these on hand for last minute gifts 🙂
