Don't look mum!

Evening all! Phew that was a lovely evening with my rainbows but now I need to chill out and upload this second post of the day. Its for my mums birthday - I've told her not to look at my blog - we'll have to see if she can manage it!

Its obviously a saturated canary digi - I saw it first on Wendy's blog (papersniffer) and just fell in love with this image - and I just know my mums going to love her to bits - she's a proper sea and beach baby!

Okay so I've coloured the digi with promarkers and cut her out adding glitter to her tail. I've mounted her onto card that has been layered ontop of more card. Underneath this layer is gold ribbon with a green centre and finally some scrapbooking paper from my stash. I've made seaweed with a glue pen, glitter and beads, stamped and cut out a crab on glitter paper, added a bow and used gems to form bubbles. I used the basic sketch from the Totally Gorjuss challenge site.

I'd like to enter my mermaid into the following challenges:
totallygorjuss Sketch Challenge
pileitonchallenge Fairytale, Fantasy and daydream
karensdoodleschallengeblog Something for mom
craftysentiments mother's day card (not mother's day in uk - but it is for my mum - don't know if that counts!!!)

Another day tomorrow - hope you all have a good one!

Hugs Rachel xx
