Dilly Beans For Mom Challenge

Oooohhh, this is the second post of the day, so please scroll down for the new Simply Steampunk Challenge card.

It's coming up, so this week's Dilly Beans Challenge is For Mom.  Megan has  some adorable new mermaids in the shop and I chose two that looked like Mother and daughter, #558 Ahmea and the little #560, Kiki, colored them with Copics and added them to a background I'd saved from some packaging, I think.  I loved the colors and knew I'd use it some day.  The ocean flora was cut from a felt coaster from M's that I blinged up with glitter and mica flakes and added glitter flowers as well.

I've had the metallic letters forever, too.  Thought they looked like sunlight hitting the water and added a bit more bling for the Whimsical Designs Bling it Out Challenge.  Fussy cutting the images was a bit of a challenge, but I love the way their hair and tail fins curled.  Inside it says "As wide as the ocean, deep as the sea".  There are more adorable examples For Mom from my teamies HERE.  Take a look and come play along.

Im also entering this in the Alphabet Challenge F is for Fantasy, the ABC M is for Make it Sparkle Challenge,  and the Crafter's Cafe Mother's or for a Female.

  2. Lovely creation. I really like your 'saved' background, very effective and your colouring is superb.

    The floral corner looks like weed blowing in the currents under the water.

    Thank you for joining us
