Beautiful Mermaid - The Paper Shelter

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to my 3 new followers who are all fellow members of the design team at The Paper Shelter.  Yes I am now on a DT. I was totally amazed and stunned to be chosen to join such a prestigious team and really look forward to working with them all, and hope you will all join in with their challenges.

Believe it or not I had already decided to use this gorgeous image with specific challenges in mind.

She is cut with Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circles large, and I made a faux nestie with rainbow silver mirror board. Shells and backing are from Craft Artist. Clouds are a memory box die and pearls and net ribbon from my stash.

She is coloured as always with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, and I added lots of Glamour Dust everywhere, but actually did her tail to look like scales but it doesn't show very well in the photos.

A side view to try to show her scales, but still doesn't really show....

The inside reflects the front.

I am entering the following challenges with her:

Thank you so much for looking and huge thanks to the team and Veronica and Pedro at The Paper Shelter for thinking I am worthy of joining you all
