It's all about water!

This week at Corrosive the challenge is titled "Slippery When Wet" and we want to see things that have to do with water. It can be rain, pools, fish, baths, whatever watery theme you are inspired to create. This is the last week to enter to be in with a chance of winning some fab digis from our sponsors, Paper Pretties and StampInsanity. My card today uses an image by StampInsanity, which I altered slightly to make her a mermaid. Basically I gave her a fish tail, which came from a Disney colouring page image. I've wanted to turn this image into a mermaid for a little while, but I never got around to it before now, and I'm really quite pleased with the result.The sentiment is also from StampInsanity, and the papers are from Crafty Chaos Designs.

These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - sketch
Everybody Art - anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - monochrome
Rainbow Lady - use a digi image
Do It With Digis - monochromatic
Crafty Creations - let it shine (glitter, metal and gems)
Scrapbooking Sisters Card Challenge - anything goes
Our Creative Corner - your style. Where to start with how this reflects my style? It's dark, but also (I hope) pretty. I love to use things that are both cute and a little bit creepy, hence leaving in the vampire fangs. I like using things that have unique sentiments, rather than a generic "Happy Birthday". I love everything digital, and creating my own embellishments to perfectly match my project (I created the seahorses on this piece).
Stampin' For The Weekend - my favourite things. This image is one I keep going back to, I just love her. She's originally a Halloween image, but I've used her for all sorts of other things.
Crafty Catz - add a charm
Totally Papercrafts - spots (behind the image) and stripes (horizontal paper slice)
Sweet Stampin' Challenges - something old (papers and image) and something new (seahorses and mermaid tail)
