Going Greeeeeeen!

OK I admit it, I am not a green person.
I can count on one hand, with fingers left over
the number of green shirts I have in my closet.
So when Sassy's sponsored the Crazy Challenge
and the theme was go green,
I cringed but signed up for it! :)

I have been wanting to use Syrena for so long
and had a new GREEN paper pad by K&Co
so figured it was fate!

Here is what I came up with:

I wanted to keep it pretty simple BUT
after Iadded the ribbon it needed something more so
I added the pearls, it is actually a grouping that Icut and stuck!
When I layed the image down I realized it needed some thing else too!
I looked for some fish net that I thought I had but could not find
so Ipulled out some of my tule. Believe it or not is is from
my wedding favors back in '04! I can't throw
anything away that Ijust may have crafting use for! LOL
I used copics to color her...I did her hair kind of messily....
I wanted the just out of the ocean look. HAHA
And I added clear star over her hair and tail....I tried
to get the picture angled enough but it still did not show very well!
Anyway I hope you like it!
Don't forget to check out the Crazy Challenge and join in the fun!

Oh, she's purty!!! I love her in green. I really like how you added the pearls to the ribbon for the extra zing, and the tulle is perfect. I do that too, where I save things forever if I think I might be able to use them on even one project. See, your hoarding paid off! LOL
