Playing in Paradise #71 - Under the Sea!

So of course, now I have little Sebastian the crab going through my head...want to join me?

You know you wanna :)

It's my turn to host the challenge at Playing in Paradise this week, and with summer fast approaching I thought this would be a great idea:
PPC #71
My first thought when creating ocean themed cards? Mermaids! It's true :)
Supplies: mermaid & bubble stickers from PSX;
paper from Fancy Pants summer soul;
Sakura Stardust glitter pen;
sentiment from Hero Arts;
Taken with Teal ink (SU);
Stickles (on the mermaid's tail)

I went over the sentiment & the wave pattern in the paper with the glitter pen. It adds just the right bit of shimmer :)
I'm looking forward to playing with my camera over the weekend & hopefully successfully incorporating some good tips - one day I'll live in a house bigger than a shoebox stuffed with 4 people, 3 cats, and a dog, and I swear I'm demanding a room WITH A DOOR that I can leave things set up in! Photo tent here I 20 years or 

So when you think of under the sea, what do you think of?
There's always a generous prize for our challenge winner, and excellent odds of winning - but you can't win if you don't play! This challenge is open until June 21st at noon - next Thursday.

Don't forget to check out what the other gals have been up to!

I should be back later on today (and tomorrow) with more fun stuff to share :) Busy times around here - now I'm off to help with Field Day!

Jessi, with a hubby, 2 growing boys, various sharp part endowed animals and a home to care for I'm amazed that you have time to craft at all let alone making gorgeous creations like this one. It is STUNNING! The stickles are the perfect touch. All that are a cruel, cruel woman as I walk off to face the day humming "Under the Sea...". Cruel. Must be the Coke Zero? ;)

Angela Fehr said...

I've been eyeing a nail polish named "Mermaid's Tail" so I love this card. Maybe I could Stickle my nails?
Kudos on crafting in a small space - I have too much room and it's always a mess!

Wow I am so impress that you get so much done with so much happening at your home. Wow your amazing indeed. Lol. Come rub elbows with me please so I can get back to creating again soon. Lol.

I just want to say that my jaw hit the floor over the design and execution of this masterpiece. From the image itself to all the fine detail of shimmer and sparkle, this is truly a masterpiece. Because this card spoke to me in such a strong way, I am have chosen you as my Inspiration for "Out & About in the Moxie Fab World" this week. You deserve it sweetie. This is amazing and I hope you win whatever challenge you place this in. Hugs.

What a beautiful glittery mermaid! My C currently draws these on every spare piece of paper in the house! Love the matchy bits and bobs too!

Jenny said...

It's that ocean paper again...great bkgd and your sparkly mermaid is fabulous :0)
I have to set up my light tent each time in my dining room because my craft space isn't big enough to house it permanently,it's a pain but works adequately I suppose :0)
