Sweet November Pearl Tidepool

I've mentioned I've really been drawn to mermaids lately so when I saw these mermaids at C.C. Designs, I had to have them. 

Amy, the artist behind these beauties and all the Sweet November stamps, is just so talented! She amazes me every time I visit her blog!!

When looking at challenges, I found that this week at Die Cut Dreams Challenge the theme is Life's a beach, so I think this will work for that! 


For the clear "bubbles" I used my Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Pen. For the pearls I used my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen. For the additional "baubles" I used my Viva Decor Emerald Green Gloss Pen. Gotta love Viva Decor!!


For her tail and top, I used my favorite, Creative Inspirations Paint in Sky Blue. I also added a touch of stardust pen to her hair. As one final touch I added Ocean Soul Smooch to her shell on her belt.


At first I thought this was going to be a very simple card and wasn't sure how I'd like it but once I got it done, I really {heart} it. Amazing what a few "extra" touches can do!

I also wanted to give a big welcome to all the new girls on the PMS DT!! You can see who they are on the PMS blog!! Looking forward to working with you all!!
