Eva the Glam Mermaid

I have been waiting to use this image for a while now ....well, not actually waiting, just wanting!  It's Eva the Gam Mermaid, available from Michelle Perkett's Studio collection.  Love it.  I decided to challenge myself, by using lots of pink (I'm not a pink kinda gal...). 

Ingredients: Cardstock - Cre8tiv; Paper - My Minds Eye; Markers - Bic; Stardust Pens, Glaze Pens - Sakura; Metallic Silver Pen - Signo; Pink Ice Rhinestones, Black Pearls, Pink Pearls - Kaisercraft; Blush Pink Paper Rose - Sullivans; Beaded Pearls, Pink Pearl Stamens - market buy, Pink Lace - local craft shop.

I've glammed Eva's seaweed 'stole', clam bodice, and fins with Clear Glaze and Pink Stardust Pens, and Silver Signo.  I also added silver Signo pen to parts of her hair - the shine doesn't show in this pic, sadly.  I added Black pearls to her clamshell purse, and other pearls and rhinestones to her waist, and hair.  The floral belli is a blush pink paper rose (love that blush pink - reminds me of Steel Magnolia's 'Blush and Bashful') ... coated with clear glass aqua beads, a few pearls on acrylic stems, and some pink pearl stamens threaded through the Lace and CS.

Eva is entered in these challenges:  Whoopsi Daisy - Flowers, Etsy Inspired ( colour inspired by the Rosie and Stardust items in this week's store), and Secret Crafter - Anything Goes.  Thanks for peepin'!
