Fancy fantasy

Today it is time for a new challenge over at Stampin' for the weekend and this time around the theme is one that all us girlies like it's fairies and fantasy.

Although I love fairies I have been hankering after a mermaid image for a while now and thought this would be a perfect excuse :)

Here is my card
The first thing to point out is that I printed the stamp onto pearlescent card, although it doesn't show on the photo, it looks great. I coloured that super sweet image, from Sylia Zet, first with my pro-markers then added a little more depth with my prisma & poly chromos. The tail is covered with stickles glitter and I added glossy accents to the bubbles. The background was then chalked blue - which also doesn't show well in the picture !

The papers are all digi from different kits I haven't listed them but if you see one that you particularly like just holler and I'll let you know :)

Here is an extra pic for you

Don't forget to hop on over to the SFTW challenge blog to check out all the fantastic DT inspiration and get all the details of the new challenge.
