Mermaid song...

Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge blog this week is challenging us to use a tag on our projects, and they gave me the excuse to make this tag/bookmark using this gorgeous image: Eva the glam mermaid by Michelle Perkett.
I colored the image with colored pencils blended with gamsol and added dots of crystal glitter on some of the pearls of her "dress". I placed the image on the tag with foam tape for dimension.
The paper I used is from a very talented lady Julia van der Werf, I cut it in half and glued each one on each side of the tag, so I have the same paper on the back where I left a place to write a personalized sentiment. I added  a ruffled lace ribbon, made a hole on the top, tied a piece of sheer ribbon with a big pink bead (all from my stash) through it and finished the tag with crystal glitter glue.
A very easy, quick and simple one! hope you like it!!
I´m playing with this tag at:
Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge #46: tag you´re it!
Creative Inspirations Challenge #43: pink and black
Totally Paper Crafts Challenge #35: a kind of magic
Little Red Wagon Challenge #47: glitter
Allsorts Challenge #71: plain and simple

Beautiful tag. Love that floaty mermaid with the added bits of sparkle and the ribbon at the top, with that bright pink bead, finishes it off perfectly.
