Under the Sea

I have been fond of Michelle Perkett images ever since I saw my blogger friend Debbie use them. She is so creative with them I just fell in love. So this is my very first attempt at one of her gorgeous girls. I decided since there was an Under the Sea challenge going on at Magical Mondays that I'd use "Princess Oceana" and combine them. Lollipop and Michelle's both wanted bling and sparkle, I hope I accomplished that too.

I used my Prisma blues to color her hair and threw in a bit of green. Reminded me of seaweed. There's a fab tutorial by Marion here that I followed. Then I used my Viva Pearl Pen on the "bubbles" and finished those off with Glossy Accents for a 3D look. Then I mounted her on this fab Basic Grey paper. Doesn't it look like fish scales?!! For the final touches I got out My Creative Scrapbook Kit and found some Prima's and gems that went perfect.

I really hope you like her. Thanks for stoppin by!

This card is entered in the following challenges:
