DTC # 73 - Cool it with some water

Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to another digital tuesday challenge.
Amy is our hostess this week and since we are in the midst of summer she'd like to see some kind of water scene/image on our projects.

For my card I used the digistamp set from Fred She Said "Emma the Mermaid". I got it a long time ago but have only used it once I think. Isn't that mermaid the cutest ever? The seahorse little fish and starfish are from the same set.

I've colored the images using my derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. My papers are from stampin up and K&company. The sentiment was computer generated. I embellished with some ribbon, a flourish diecut, stickles glitter (on the seahorse, mermaid, stars and designer paper but it's kind of hard to see on same parts).

I am also entering my card to this week's
Hope you get a chance to join us this week, we have a fantastic new sponsor, Deedee's Digis. The prize is going to be a $10 store credit to shop at Deedee's. How fun is that!!

Have a great day,
Ellie.

P.S: I had to turn on comment moderation because I received a few too many anonymous spam comments the last couple of days, just thought I'd let you know in case you are wondering where your comment went.
