Mermaids and Sparkle

Do you love mermaids? Do you love sparkle? Do you love vinyl?
If you answered yes to any of these, then this is the blog hop for you! Make sure you visit all the amazing designers to see some fabulous projects! Rita Barakat Designs and Styletech Craft have joined forces to share some great ideas to show how well their products work together.

I dug around in my stash because I knew I had this little chair somewhere and knew it was perfect for this project!
I fussy cut Rita's marvelous mermaids out and made a rough template for my chair. I then used my template to cut out the gorgeous glittery vinyl from Styletech! I used very different colours for me, but loved them for this project.

My little beach chair with my vinyl and rough template

These colours are so deep and rich!

Look at the amazing glitter on that sheet of vinyl!

I wanted to add a touch of shimmer to the mermaids. I used an embossing pen to add some highlights using the Rita Barakat Fairy Wings Embossing Powder in green and purple.

The colours shown here are part of the Fairy Wings kit.

Look at the beautiful shimmer in her hair and the glittery goodness from the vinyl

I used some TH word dies to make a little sign for the chair. The Styletech vinyl cuts so smooth! I attached the sign to a piece of driftwood from my local beach and did a quick emboss with Dirty Sand Baked Texture.

And the final product is two lovely merfriends sitting on the beach for a bit!

Make sure you hop on through to see all the amazing ideas the designers have come up with!
