Digi Haven DT Project - Sea Life

We have a new challenge for you, starting today, at Digi Haven, this time our theme is "Sea Life", and our sponsor is Digi Stamps 4 Joy, who kindly gave the DT some images to play with for this challenge.  I have a bit of a thing about mermaids, so I couldn't resist this beautiful image, which I coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with Star Dust Stickles.  We'd love you to play along, all you need to do is follow the theme, use a digi and link back to us, easy as that!
 I decided to make a small canvas rather than a card for this challenge, it's about 5x7 inches in size.
I painted the canvas with pale blue acrylic paint, and once dry, glued on my coloured image.
I then dipped the rubber end of a pencil into some Imagination Craft Sparkle Medium, and dotted it on, over the canvas and onto the Promarkered card around the mermaid to give a bubbly effect.
Next, I stuck on various strips of green ribbon for seaweed and added some shells, which I covered in Anita's 3D Gloss and sprinkled with Glamour Dust for a bit of sparkle.
To embellish, I added a shed load of gems and pearls, placing the final pearl between the mermaid's fingers.
