Glitter Mermaid.....

Today I am sharing a very glittery card which fits in perfectly with the current challenge over at
'Squiggle Stamps'.....Glam & Glitz!
I have used the lovely Mermaid digi image coloured with promarkers......and then the fun part!!
I have used Stampin Up's Heat & Stick powder to glitter the whole this technique and I think it looks like she is underwater :) I do have glitter everywhere though!!

Morning :) Apologies for not blogging again this week!!
Time is running away from me just lately!'s Saturday already!! so time for a new challenge from Penny Black Saturday....

I enjoyed making my shabby chic card....I went for pretty vintagey papers in soft colours and distressed the edges of my mat with scissors and inked all the edges. Reminds me of an old quilt :)
The gorgeous PB image is coloured with promarkers and prismas & the papers were freebies from a craft mag.
