Arctic Princess

 When the latest release at SCACD, Mythical Reflections, came out last week, I couldn't wait to play with this image, Arctic Princess. All of the images in this release are amazing, but this mermaid and her seahorse just called to me!  They were begging to be blinged up!!!
 After stamping in Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, I colored up the image.  I used the Copic Glitter pen in gold on the reins.  Viva Decor Glitter liner in hologram on her tail, the ice crystals, and the shell on her crown and on the seahorse.  The seahorse main and fin on her tail are covered in Stickles.  I used Liquid Pearls for the dimension on the pearls at the top of her crown.

One of the most fun parts of creating this card though was making the ocean scene. I used Silk Acrylic Glaze in Oyster and French Lilac.  The Oyster was applied using a small brush and the Crafter's Workshop Flames Stencil.  The French Lilac was applied using a sponge and the Crafter's Workshop Branches Reversed stencil. 
The corner die cuts on the top are from the Dies by SCACD collection and are one of two gorgeous dies you receive in the Classic Corners.  Make sure you check out the SCACD Store Blog for other creations from the DT with the Mythical Reflections release and the Elisabeth Bell Sampler #8 release.
