Magical Mermaid Tag


I'd like to share a tag I made using Smushasha from Stampotique.

I coloured her with Prismacolour markers and fussy cut her out. 

I coloured her eyes and bow green, then went over them with Glossy Accents.  I added a green rhinestone to the center of her bow. 

For the background, I crinkled up foil and then glued it to the tag. I dabbed on Alcohol Inks in Sail Boat Blue and Purple Twilight. I added some bubbles with a stencil and white embossing paste, then coloured them blue with Staz On ink. I mixed together Stickles in icicle and turquoise and with a paintbrush, spread it all over the entire tag.
I added some seaweed and edged the sentiment in a blue Gel pen. Lastly I attached some frilly blue yarn to the top.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
