Creative Card Crew #16 DT Card

The theme for our 16th challenge at The Creative Card Crew is On the Beach/Under the Sea.  We are being sponsored by Michelle Perkett Studio and we have a $10 gift for one lucky entrant to spend in Michelle's fabulous store

I have chosen to use Serena, just one of Michelle's mermaids

I have kept the design of the card quite simple as I didn't want to detract from the image.  I edged the papers with a green ink pad

I did stamp the sentiment direct on the card but there must have been a bit of fluff/fibres on the ink pad which left a smudge.  I stamped it again on another piece of the same paper and cut it out using a scalloped die.  I attached it with dsst  as I wanted it to be flat on the surface of the card.

I added glitter to the background and painted the image with Glossy Accents to make her look wet.  When it was dry I added more Glossy Accents to the flowers to give a raised finish and added drops to each of the scallops on the sentiment panel
