It's a bit soggy over at the Pollycrafts Monday challenge!

It's Pollycrafts Monday and this week I get to set the challenge!  As it is the world famous Henley Regatta week where's there's lots of splashing about, I chose water as this week's theme!  But I didn't go for a sailing theme, instead I used the sweet mermaid fromthe newest Swings and Slides Enchant and Explore set...

 
 
 
I just love her hair, you can almost feel it swaying in the water!  I also used the sentiment from Sonny Says clear stamp set - I just love the whimsical sentiments in this set!  To give the whole card a little shimmer, I added glitter glue to her ball and around her tail as well as on the web ribbon and red border - you can see it better below (but not much better, lol!!)...



I hope you get a chance to play along this week!  You can see the other gorgeous DT makes here!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, K&Company Actopus to Zelephant mat pad, Core'dinations white wash cardstock
Stamps: Pollycrafts Swings and Slides Enchant and Explore set and sentiment from Sonny Says clear stamp set, Ladybug Crafts Ink sentiment inside card
Mediums: Copics, Stickles glitter glue
Accents: web ribbon (from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here)
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch, Nestabilitie dies, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool
