Mermaid Crossing

Hello Everyone!!
It's time for another challenge at

For my addition to the design team work, I chose "Mermaid Crossing".  I colored the tail in marker and Kaisercraft glitter gel pens.  I love them.  I love them alot.
First I brushed with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and my water brush.  Then I used a Kaisercraft ripple stencil and blended and blended with distress inks: Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers moving the stencil with each color change.   Then I set that to the side for a bit to dry fully.
The Frame was cut from periwinkle cs using a MFT rectangle die and then I ran that through with a swirled embossing folder by Cuttlebug.   The large seashell is also from Pattie's Creations "Sea Shell Border #2".  I colored that with only colored pencils.   The sentiment was edged in Shaded Lilac distress ink and then added with foam dots.  I added pale blue Neuvo dots over and under the sentiment.
All of this was added to a navy blue cs side fold base.

I wish you all luck playing along with us and I'm looking forward to seeing your creations.
