Tag Tuesday - Green

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.

A fitting quote from the most famous little mermaid of all was added next and some seaweed style fibres with stickles liberally applied were tied to the top of the tag.  I wanted to add shells but they just didn't fit in with this fantasy image of life under the sea so I opted for these copper star embellishments that were hiding in my stash and I think that they look a bit like ethereal jelly fish or maybe fabulous squid floating by.  I have loved getting all glittery and girly for this green themed tag.  

I can't wait to see what green inspired tags are created by the fabulous Tag Tuesday crew.  Why not follow this link and take a look.

Thanks for popping by and thank you to everyone that left such lovely comments last week.
