Trust a Mermaid Tag


Here is a tag I made using Smumanha from Stampotique. 

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

For the background: I gessoed the tag, then sprayed it with Dylusions Ink Sprays in Calypso Teal and Crushed Grape. Then I took a Crafters' Workshop stencil called Sea Bubbles and used white embossing paste across the entire tag. When that was dry, I sprayed everything with Tattered Angels spray in Trunk Bay to give it all-over sparkle.

The letters in a bottle are digital stamps which I coloured then applied Glossy Accents to. It gave them a really cool glass effect.

To go along with the sentiment, I have her holding one of the bottles and the rest at the bottom, almost like she's collecting them. 

I edged the sentiment in a blue Gel pen.

I sprayed a gauze-like ribbon with Dylusions Ink in the same teal and purple and attached it to the top.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
