Crafting When We Can Challenges #32 - Fairytales

This challenge we are sponsored by

Krista is giving away 2 images, to the Winner, from her wonderful store.  Krista was kind enough to let us choose our image for this challenge and I chose Pearl because I wanted to do The Little Mermaid (yes I went with the Disney version but I do love her hair).

I coloured my image with Distressed Inks and used a spellbinder die to cut it out as well as some swirls.  The ribbon is from Craft Den and the papers are from a 360 page pad by K and Co.  I never thought I would use paper but as soon as I saw this image I knew it would work.  The pearls were made with a Viva Pearl Pen and it only took me 2 goes to get it right.  The first lot I made I put my hand in, as usual but the second lot I managed to let dry without incident.  I also put some glaze drops in her hair.
