A mermaid's bubble bath

     Did you know that mermaids like bubbles?  LOL  Neither did I, but this little miss sure does.  This image is called "Mermaids Love Bubbles" and is part of one of the freebie bundles you can add to your cart when you purchase $16.00 worth of digi stamps from the A Day For Daisies store.  There are four different bundles to choose from.
     It took me quite a while to decide which papers I was going to use, but when I ran across these My Mind's Eye scraps I couldn't pass them up because they look so much like bathroom tile patterns to me.  LOL
     I tried and tried, but there was no way to get the sparkle to show up in a photo.  The image is colored with Copics, but I went over the mermaids hair with Gold Perfect Pearls and her body with Pearl Perfect Pearls.  For the bubbles I got out my Sea Foam Creative Inspiration paint and used it to shade them.  It all looks so cute and shimmery in real life.  Wish you could see it.  :-(
     Our ADFD challenge still has another week to go.  Tammy's offering the cutest little group of chicks in a snow globe as a freebie and we want to see some glitter on your projects.  Hope you'll come play along.
     I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

The Outlawz Copic Challenge--anything goes
Digi Doodle Shop--anything goes
Little Miss Muffett--blues and creams
Little Darlings--polka dots (she even has dots on her tail!  :-)  )
Simon Says Stamp--anything goes
Make It Monday--anything goes

     Be blessed!
