Welcome to another fabulous challenge at LOVE TO SCRAP!  We have a great theme for you today "Bling It Girlfriend".  Add all the shiny and sparkly stuff your heart desires.  We welcome three awesome sponsors too
Limited Runs Stamps

Prize: 3 images to winner

Prize: 7 images to winner

Prize: $12 gift certificate

I was given this image from Limited Runs.  She is called Pearl.  When I saw her all I could think of was bottom of the sea.  I really wished I had a treasure chest filled with gold and gems but alas I did not.  I created this background for her though.  I sprayed with Dylusions London Blue but also wanted to add some green in.  So I grabbed my green Bister powder and mixed it on my craft sheet with water.  Unfortunately when you do that you get a muddy green and I didn't want that so I added some yellow Color burst to it and got a better color.  

After it dried I embossed it with these circles and added white gel pens and Stickles Turquoise for a bubble look.  I cut out the seaweed from three different green papers and distressed them.  As I was looking for anything nautical in my stash, I found these pretty fish stickers that were all sparkly.  Of course the clown fish makes me think of Nemo.  I just love dolphins so I thought I would add a charm I bought some time ago (when I was concentrating more on jewelry).

I hope you have been inspired in some way and will join us in the challenge.  Don't forget to stop by LTSCB and check out all the other wonderful creations from the DT.

Thanks for visiting and have an amazing day!
