Bad to the Gills

Hello again,

Two days in a row. Mark this on the calendar. LOL

Ok, a few weeks ago I won a challenge over at Digi Galore (thanks ladies) and the prize was images from Simply Betty. I had seen some projects done using the stamps but never really had the chance to check them out. Well I have to say boy did I have a hard time picking out what I wanted for the prize. LOL Of course I went back and purchased the other that were on the wish list. So that lead me to find Simply Betty's facebook group. Wow, lots of fun activity there. She was having a give away for an image but you had to use it in the challenge. You got to pick good or evil of the mermaids. At first I picked good but change it real quick to evil. I thought Oh I am going with something different. 

I had so much fun coloring this and giving it a little bit of evil. Although I think she looks more a little more on the evil seductive side. LOL 

I have colored her with my copics. But I thought she need more so I added distress stickles to her scales. I love stickles. I think it is one of my favorite ways to dress up a card. 

Because I wanted this to have a lot of dimension I need seaweed. Ok so I check my cut files. Nah nothing.So I looked at what I had in my stash. Ok opened a bag of Christmas florals that I bought a couple of years ago. So I pulled of two piece of what was shiny silver. Broke out my air compressor for my copics and had at it. Boom they matched. Yay. 

The verse also came with the digi image and it so perfect. I thought the paper went well with it cause the distressed look kind of reminds me of bubbles . Ok I have went on long enough. Thanks so much for stopping by and checking my Out side of my comfort zone project. Be sure and stop over to Simply Betty and check out her images. She really has some really fun image. 

I am entering this into the following challenges.
