Under the Sea

At Crafty Emblies this month the challenge is Under the Sea. Always lovely to join in the challenges there and I was lucky enough to be chosen as the winner last time--thank you. Always wonderful to see all the samples made by the talented team.

Here is my make for this month. I used one of the Crafty Emblies ATCS which are so wonderful to work on. I painted it with H20 paints so it has a bit of a sparkle.Then I added a silhouette shape of a mermaid. Next came the exciting bit. I stuck a few of the little CE flowers onto a small stamping block and then used them to stamp a few times on the ATC. I did the same with one of the star shapes from CE as well. Then I stuck on some of the shapes and coloured them with gold, silver and black. I am saving my little three flower shape as I am sure I will be able to use it often in the future.
