Under the Sea Fashion Show!

I made this card for an Anya fashion show at The Greeting Farm (formerly Pink Poison). The idea was to take one of these wonderful Anya stamps and dress her up somehow. I took individual sequins and pasted them on her tail. Then I added 2 shells to cover her assets and painted them with Key Lime Shimmerz...(how I LOVE my Shimmerz!) I cut out some seaweed and painted that with Shimmerz as well. I cuttlebugged the fish and guess what is on them? Shimmerz!!! I used crystal effects and drew some sea looking squiggles and put metal micro beads all over it to adhere them and give them dimension! I put all of this on Dovecraft paper that you can find here at my friend Susana's store. She is the only one in the US to carry this gorgeous paper. So here is my Mermaid all decked out! This was a fun challenge and I felt like I was on Project Runway! So fun! Thanks for looking and have a great day!
