Over at the Crafty Purple Frog the challenge this fortnight is "take a dip" eg blue, reflection, water.
Well I have used the image called The Elegant Moment. This image is absolutely gorgeous. Amy has done a wonderful job making it into a decoupage sheet.
|There is also a pyramage sheet as well available.|
I decided to use this sheet as she's a mermaid who would normally be in the water. The image has been decoupaged and I have highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and also added Glossy Accents to her mirror and the scales of her tail. I have used some printed backing card which I've had for ages along with some mirri card. I coloured some chipboard flourishes with my green Promarker and then rubbed over some green glitter glue - for those of me that know me will be laughing as I don't really do messy and ended up with slimy feeling glittered fingers!!! The card is finished off with some raffia ribbon, Craftwork cards die-cut sentiment, buttons, doily coloured with my ink dusters with Tim Holtz's peeled pain distress ink pad and some handmade flowers cut from a book, coloured with Tim Holtz Peeled paint and Crushed Olive distress ink pads, green glitter glue rubbed on and finished off with some brads.
