VIP blog hop and shop!

 Welcome to the My Favorite Things mid month event....the VIP blog hop and shop!
This is "Who's that Mermaid?" I actually have to confess...the new Pirates of the Carribean movie totally distorted my view of mermaids. Did it do that to anyone else? I choose to think of mermaids (the disney way).
I had a patterned acetate sheet from My Little Yellow Bicycle that was perfect for this project....any destination that has mermaids must be warm and delightful!  I added a few button bubbles to go with the sentiment for fun.
Here is a close up of the copic coloring. I dabbed the colors in with my markers instead of doing smooth coloring to add some texture. After coloring I added some white liquid applique for my shore foam and glossy accents to the mermaid to make her nice and shiny/wet.
 I had a little scrap of the acetate leftover so I used it to finish up the inside. Another little sentiment for the sentiment set you get in the VIP kit and a little coral accent.

Have a look at what is all included in this kit!
