July 21, 2014 - My Besties International DT Challenge - Mermaids

Happy Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to my blog where this week our My Besties International DT challenge is using mermaids.  I have always loved mermaids and it brings back memories of Walt Disney cartoons/movies with mermaids.  It also brings back very old memories of the movie with Darrell Hannah when she played a mermaid.  Man that was a long time ago and I am dating myself for sure.  I am surprised that I can remember the name of the actress but can't remember the name of the movie.  Guess I'm having one of those senior moments.  :-)  

Back to our challenge.  I have chosen one of Sherri Baldy's beautiful mermaids that I got from her Etsy Store.  She is IMG 696 and you can purchase her HERE

I fell in love with this mermaid the minute I saw it.  Hope you like my card below.

The theme of using mermaids just called out to me to use aqua's and greens, so you can see that is what I did.  I also wanted to use something that truly came from the sea, so I found some small seashells and used those instead of using flowers that I usually put on my cards.  Somehow, flowers just didn't seem to fit the challenge.  LOL  

Supplies Used
Memory Box Dies
Derwent InkTense Pencils
Digital Sentiment - Whimsey
Waves and bubbles - JoLees
Papers and aqual rinestones - from  my stash
Corner Punch - Stampin Up

Thank you all once again for visiting my blog and I would encourage you to join us in our challenge of Mermaids.  Sherri has many different ones and I would love to see your beautiful creations using them.  If you would like to join our Bestie International DT challenge you can by clicking HERE
