Simon Says Stamp DT - Going Spotty

It seems like forever since I posted a card LOL!! I can't believe it is Wednesday already and I haven't posted a thing since Friday!! It is time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week our theme is "going spotty". The DT are showcasing Prima products this week so we'd love to see them on your creations if you have any of their papers, flowers, gems etc if not, don't worry, you can still join in!! As usual Heidi is offering a generous $25 spree in the store to the lucky winner! Before I get onto my card I have some sad news. Dena has decided to step down from her DT post with the challenge. It has been so wonderful to work with you hun and you will be greatly missed! xx

My spots are on the Bo Bunny paper behind Tilda but seems you can hardly see them on this photo LOL!! I have used a couple of images from the Magnolia summer kit which are available for preorder from Simon Says Stamp now! The stripey paper is Basic Grey Cappella collection and the spotty paper is Bo Bunny.

I have coloured the gorgeous little mermaid Tilda with copics and added a tonne of stickles all over her tail, bikini and even some strands in her hair for some mermaid shimmer!

I also used the seahorse from the kit, again coloured with copics and covered in stickles. The large shell and all the pointed shells are Hero Arts stamps, covered in rock candy stickles. I have added lots of sea swirls and waves using Tim Holtz flourishes die (which I've cut from aqua cardstock and painted the ends with pickett fence crackle paint for a wave effect) and glitter spotted vellum punched with an EK Success swirl punch.

The gorgeous aida flowers are by Prima and the pearl brads and half pearls are from my stash.

Hope you like it and can join us this week at Simon Says Stamp!! Thanks for looking! x
