It's Nautical at MAWTT

Hello again - this is my second post today - please scroll down to see my DT post for Charisma
This time I am here to share my DT post for
and this week our lovely Leesa is playing host for the first time so it would be great to see you give Leesa loads of support and play along :o)
and the fab theme is
(anything to do with the sea)

So as I said in my first post today I would be back with another project playing with embossing powders and here it is :o)
This time though I used the embossing powders and Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels to 'colour' Tilda's Mermaid tail - I think it kinda works - don't you?

I also used some satin mirror board embossed with Creative Expressions Retro Circles Mask - I distressed the edges and then inked with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with Sparkle EP.

Here's a closer look:

The scrummy two tone ribbon was a RAK from my lovely friend Jules - a long time ago - thank you :o)
DP - birthday gift from my bestest blogging buddy Claire
Shells from my holiday collection
