Green is my favourite colour and I was racking my brains what to do (this opens the design doors so wide it is quite difficult to pick a topic) I started to think about doing something sea orientated and mermaid just popped (swam) into my head and everything when sparkly from then on. I now have mermaid scales on my fingers (ok then, stickles!)
My tag is sprayed liberally with Dylusions ink sprays Lime, Sky Blue Pearl and Vanilla Custard. My kitchen towel that I used to catch overspray looks just as stunning as my tag (saving that!). I added seaweed to the bottom of the tag by scribbling on Turquoise, Green and Lime Green Stickles. No great skill required so far!
I printed out a mermaid image as a base to decorate and then set to with a hole punch. I punched out pretty scales from glitter and shimmery card in shades of green and turquoise. I really enjoyed layering up the scales on the tail and adding more stickles and gems to make my mermaid shimmer.
Here is a close up of the scales and seaweed. I can almost hear the ocean in the distance.
