Time to go hoppin'

Yep! It's Friday 10 May and that means release day at Crafty Sentiments Designs and excitingly its a blog hop too with the chance of a prize!  All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to leave a comment on the 8th /9th /10th on the Inspirational blog, become a follower if you're not already and also visit and leave a comment on all participating blogs on the 10th.

The hop starts and finishes at the Crafty Sentiments Inspirational Blog and passes through lots of amazing blogs along the way.  There is a full list of participating DT blogs on the Inspirational Blog in case you get lost along the way.

Right onto my card, well you should have arrived here from Cathy's  blog and for my card I have used the adorable image 'Primrose the Mermaid' I have coloured her with copics and paper pieced her tail with some textured holographic shiny paper.  I used an aperture card and placed some swirly embossed acetate in front of the image to give an impression of water, wasn't sure if it would work but I actually like the way it turned out.  I added some swirly die cut corners, branches and found a VERY old resin type sticker.

Here is a close up of the swirly embossing and  the sparkly paper.

So now it's time to hop over to Susan 's blog.  I hop you have enjoyed all of our previews over the past 3 days, and I'm sure you'll all agree what a stunning and adorable set of new stamps these are.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
