Pilin' On the Fantasy

The themes this month at Pile It On are Black, Purple & Orange and/or Fantasy. You can choose one or both themes, and you may enter the challenge as many times you like, as long as you are inspired by at least one other Challenge theme. We're sponsored by Ike's Art, and I used her Mermaid 3 digital stamp.

I colored the beautiful image with Copic markers & added a mix of purple mica & glitters from my stash. The  double-sided patterned paper is from Authentique's "Sea-Maiden" collection. The sentiment is from Echo Park's Alice in Wonderland set. The frame is a die from Elizabeth Craft's "Lace Rectangles" set. I used fun foam to pop it up to make a shaker portion, and filled it with glass & colored microbeads, and more of the purple mica/glitter mix. The frames were cut from an ombre, ocean-patterned paper. The "tail" & bottom of the sentiment piece were made from a scrap of cork decorated with the Frantage method; Mom & I took a class on it years ago and now I'm glad I kept it in my stash for so long!
