Simon Says Sparkle and Shine..Mermaid Tilda...

Think you may need your sunglasses on for this Sparkly creation..
def the S word here..LOL.. Well Sparkle to me means the beautiful
Mediterranean sea all those gorgeous blues/greens & the sun sparkling
on the sea..ohh  am almost there mmmm...as were in a seaside mode
I used this lovely but sadly neglected Mermaid Tilda Magnolia stamp..
for my 2nd. GDT creation, the theme at Simon Says Stamp chall is

Sparkle and Shine

Tilda image is coloured with markers..&&& copious amounts of
Ranger Stickles Waterfall blue.. bubbles more stickles Crystal this time..
I also used the lovely sweet Sea Horse stamp just to make Tilda feel at home..
Tilda is framed with SpellBinders Nestabilities Round & Scallop shapes..
The design paper is Tim Holtz gorgeous Vintage Shabby edged with more stickles..
well it is Sparkle and Shine chall..LOL. The edges of the White card have been
punched with an EK success border swirl punch..  The DIY flower was made from
nestie shapes & the Tim Holtz shabby papers sprayed liberally with Tatterd Angels Pearl
glimmer mist until the paper was really wet..I let the shapes dry a little then
shaped up the flower & used a gem brad from stash.. dabbed the edges with
TH distressed ink. Tumbled Glass.. The sweet little Seahorse got some
Stickles on his tummy..card stock from my stash, the shell charm
is from GF & HM teamie America..

&&& look at the prize for one lucky winner..$50 voucher..
to spend at the Simon Says Store
