Gecko Galz July Customer Challenge - In a Mermaid's Garden

Hello, my friends!

Welcome back to a brand new Customer Challenge at Gecko Galz.
The July Challenge is:

In a Mermaid's Garden!

I made a tag for the Challenge this month. 
I created the tag base from an aqua green cardstock.
Then I used a Gecko Galz paper from the Marble Halls Paper Pack.
I cut it slightly smaller than the tag base.
I punched across the bottom with a decorative punch. 
I ink and tool distressed all the edges and adhered them together. 

 Then I adhered a piece of cheesecloth to the center of the tag.
Once it was in place, I sprayed the whole thing with Glimmer Mist. 
Once it was dry, I adhered the colored image, 
and all the pretty rhinestones.
I also added some sea-weedy fibers to the tag top.

Here's a closer look at the sweet mermaid image. 
This image is from the Sunny Summer Digital Stamp Set.
I colored it with my markers, added some Stickles,
and adhered it in place with foam tape.

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Punch: Martha Stewart - Scalloped Teardrop;
Color: Spectrum Noir Markers;
Glimmer Mist: Wheat Beer;
Fiber: CTMH - Green, Yellow, Orange;
Bling: Crafts - Rhinestone Stickers;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;

Wow. Your tag is gorgeous. I love all of the wonderful texture. I think this would fit into our challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. A mermaid is at least 1/2 critter, right? hugs, Teresa

Love the shimmer on the tail, she's delightful! I also know for a fact that there is no way I could have made the netting look that good. Random, but also tidy!! Artfully tidy crafting is now refered to as Nancy-crafting at my house :)Fibres have worked out great too!
