June Challenge at Crafty Calendar

The first Saturday of June!!! Time for our new challenge at Crafty Calendar, sponsored this month by Sheepski Designs the theme is '3 of something'. I coloured up this sweet mermaid image using my copics and lashings of Wink of Stella, try as I might I couldn't get a great photo...the colours are not at all true to life, but this one is the closest! As you can see there are 3 sequins, 3 seahorses and 3 different dp (the large seahorse is cut from dp). You might also notice the aqua coloured layer is stuck on sideways so the wave pattern is going the wrong way...doh!).
I added another photo so you can see the lovely shimmer from the Wink of Stella -see what I mean about the colours!

Please click here to check out the beautiful creations from the rest of the team, it would be great if you decide to play along with us this month.
Have a great weekend
