I Love Promarkers DT Card - The Not So Little Mermaid!

It's challenge time again over at I Love Promarkers, this week it's "Anything Goes", so get out your Pros and colour up anything you want.  Our sponsor this time is Dr Digi who has fab images for cards with a sense of humour.  Some of the DT were given an image to play with, I chose this mermaid, I think she's hilarious.  It's not my usual sort of image but I had such fun with this one.
After colouring, I added Anita's 3D Gloss to the tail and sprinkled on some green "hairy" glitter and some fine dark blue glitter for a big splash of sparkle.  I also added pearls and Liquid Pearls for bubbles.  The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley set, I thought it was perfect for this image.  The patterned papers are all Papermania Capsule Collection in Blueberry Pie, I chose watery swirls and a leafy print which I think is rather like seaweed to continue the under the sea theme.  The fronds of seaweed were made with a Spellbinders Foliage die and I finished off with a ribbon, bow, Card Candi, gems, three punched circles and some blue pearls.
