Wicked Wednesday ATC Mermaid Challenge


I am sooo getting into ATC's! Just the perfect little tidbit when you have a few minutes to spare in the craft room. And although working in miniature can have it's drawbacks (in the coloring arena especially)they're just so darn CUTE when you're done. So this week's Wicked Wednesday theme is mermaids. I knew immediately I wanted to use this cutie from Dilly Beans, especially because she looks so perfect with the K&Co DP I immediately thought of when I saw the challenge. She was a bit of a challenge to fussy cut in this tiny size, but nothin' a sharp craft knife couldn't handle. You can't really see how she sparkles, either. After coloring with Copics, I went over her hair and scales with Spica pens.

She's popped above the waves and I've added sparkly acrylic bubbles. Then I punched some shells for the ocean floor with my MS border punch out of textured sand like paper and used Glossy Accents to attach some little beads and of course a pearl to the shell. Popped that too. Me likey! I'm also entering this in My Craft Place Beside the Sea Challenge, and the ATC's & Cards with Attitude Anything Goes challenge.
