Serina the Sexy Siren!

I absolutely love mermaids and The Little Mermaid was always one of my favourite stories as a child - I think it must be the idea of being such a beautiful enchanting mythical creature that appeals to me. I thought I would use this gorgeous digi Serina today for Creative Inspirations Challenge #264 By The Seaside - mermaids do appear by the seashore, don't they? this card is also for The Stamping Chef's Challenge #28 Anything Goes, Fab 'n' Funky's Challenge #215 Pretty Hair (a new challenge blog I found yesterday) and Bunny Zoe's Challenge for April to use distressing.

And here she is - I did get a bit carried away with all the glitter dots and my Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen, but you can never have too much glitter, can you? This was also my first attempt at doing two-tone colouring on her tail and it's not quite right, but not too bad.

Accessories: Tempting Turquoise Ribbon (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Glitterations from Papermania, Frame Square Die 6002/0147 from Joy Crafts, White Brads from Stash, Seahorse Die Cuts from Silhouette Portrait
