Mermaids One, Two, Three!

Challenges

Digital Tueday (68) - Happy Birthday
ABC - Z is for Zig Zag Card
Charisma Cardz (29) - Anything But Square
Digi Doodle (17) - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Something flowery
Secret Crafter (93) - Fairytales

I made my card using a template I bought at the Farnborough show. I thought it was about time I had a play with it. I covered both sides of the card with coordinating papers, adding some gems to the front. Having coloured the digi stamps with Promarkers, chalks and Sakura Stardust pens I added glitter to their tails. I also added Diamond glaze to the bubbles. I then layered the images onto holographic card. The flowers and leaves have all been punched out of various glittery and mirri card with a gem added to the centre of the flowers. Altogether very sparkly and glittery!
