Three Challenges in one :)


This is the first time I've used one creation to enter multiple challenges, so I do hope that's ok. I have checked on each challenge blog and I can't find anything that says I shouldn't do it, but I'll apologise in advance if I shouldn't have. :)

The challenge this week at Dare You to Digi Stamp is to use the colours blue, green and white/cream. And of course a digital image, this one is from Dezinaworld.

It's the letter U this week over at the Alphabet Challenge blog, so I think Underwater fits.

And it's the 100th challenge this week over at Papertake Weekly, which means you have a choice of ANY of the 99 previous challenges. I've gone for Delightful Downloads, which was first posted on 23rd June this year and can be seen here.

And, lol, finally on to the ATC. The background is from Pocketful of Posies by DCWV. The mermaid is a digital stamp from Dezinaworld, run by the lovely June. I coloured her digitally, printed her twice, then covered her tail with hologaphic silver paper, (which is showing reddish tones in the picture, but actually look turquoise in real life) and decoupaged her with foam pads. The seaweed fronds are a piece of furry wire that I received from the lovely Liz last year, and the silver paper and the lace sentiment also came from her. Thanks Liz! :)
Then I also drew on her hair and fin with a green glitter pen and stuck some gems on the corner. Phew, I think this might be my longest post ever!

Ah! Sorry, Susan I DID read your thingy a little while ago.. But having problems with big words~I have a small brain~I miss them out!!I DID make a mental note, but forgot... I've put it on a stick-it note so I won't forget next time! I usually go through my followers list first and the only ones who haven't had something from me, are the ones with no links or no blogs or have just this minute joined
