Swimming with the Mermaids

It's Stampendous Saturday and the monthly challenge is all about BLING! I am sharing a very blingy project as it has a beautiful mermaid that I happened to capture and put in a bottle.
This is a sneak peek of the mermaid stamp from Stampendous.  She is beautiful and she has that sweet seahorse that she is holding. I used some magic to make him appear as he is floating in front of her.

The bling is all the wonderful halo glitters and mixed into my seabed is some of the beautiful crushed glass glitter.  There is all kinds of new glitter, and bling coming out.  These are not in the store yet but will be available the end of January.

She is stamped using memento and colored with Copics.  I added halo crystal to her scales to give her a little glitter too.  The shells are covered in bronze embossing enamel and then encrusted with halo glitter. 


The DT has some fabulous projects to share:

How sweet is that.

Wow Sue, what will you come up with next? This is really lovely and so clever. I love the way you've coloured the mermaid and the 'floating' seahorse is very intriguing.
