Update - 31st May
Wow - I'm doing star jumps today!!
My card won 1st prize in this month's  Sir Stampalot Challenge Thank you so much DT! 

Anyhoo - onwards and upwards, and onto this week's DT card for another fab. challenge at MAWTT.
This week the "sketch" challenge has been chosen by the lovely Hazeland our Sponsor is Stitchy Bear Stamps and they are giving $10 of digi stamps to the winner!
The DT have used digi images available from Stitchy's on-line shop, so do pop over to see their fab. creations!
I chose this beautiful "Mermaid" image from Sylvie's Stamps (available at Stitchy Bears) for my DT card, coloured her with Copics, added a sprinkling of Glamour dust on the bubbles, and pearl gems on each corner. Weathered Wood DI applied around the edges.  The patterned backing paper is from the gorgeous Kaiser Craft "Magic Happens" paper pad which I won in Mina's Candy several weeks ago (thanks Mina)! The design is what I imagine it to look like on the sea-bed, with floaty deep-sea plants, though I've never been diving so what do I know!!!
The 3 rectangles are also cut from the same pad and embossed on the CB.
The tiny sentiment is from a set by Hero Arts (I think)!, circular punch from Woodware, and black circular border is a CB die which is exactly the right size for the punch!
Black cardstock from SU.
Look forward to seeing more of your amazing creations, and thank you for all your fabulous entries last week.
I would like to enter this card into the following Challenge -
Sir Stampalot - Magical Worlds.

Hi Sylvia
What a beautiful card! I love the DPs you've used and that embossed card as created the perfect texture for under the sea! Your image is coloured superbly, and I'd love to know how you've done the shading around the mermaid.... that's quite different from the shading I'm used to but is perfect! Can you email me to tell me? pretty please?

A delightful card Sylvia.

Sorry I am so late getting here, only just back from Edinburgh and then Blogger threw a right Royal hissy fit and there was no way he was letting me do any commenting until a short while ago.

Thank you for sharing you lovely work with us at Stampalot this month and good luck.
