DDSC #74 - Fantasy/Magical

I'm Back!!!
This time with my creation for this week's fun challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges - which is to create something with a Fantasy/ Magical theme.

I have made a tag this week using the lovely Mermaid image which can be found in the shop here. I have added lots of glitter and pearl paint to really glam her up plus some beautiful blue foil to her tail. Lots going on here - lace, pearls, die cuts, netting and ribbon :0)

The image of the clam shell that she is sitting on comes from Make it Crafty and I think works really well with the Mermaid.

The shells and starfish are some digis I found on my computer. 

I hope you will join us for this week's fab challenge - do take a look at the rest of the DT's cards, they are GORGEOUS. As always, you don't have to use a Digi Doodle Shop image but if you do, you will get an extra entry into the drawer.

Colouring medium - Promarkers, pearl paint
Paper - Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby
Distress Ink - Broken China
Seaweed - MS punch and Magnolia Doohickey die
Netting - an old scrunchy!!
Glitter - Stardust Stickles
Pearls, lace, ribbon and brad - stash
Sentiment - freebie

Ok, that's all from me today. Thanks for looking and happy crafting.

Great colouring Denise. Sorry I am not around a lot but the house move is hectic. Especially when hubby clearing the loft breaks through the ceiling and you are waiting for the insurance assessors! As you know we have sold and waiting to exchange contracts.
