Mad For Markers Celebrates Birthday!

Let's Party!
La-La Land Project

Happy Thursday to all my wonderful friends!   I am so excited to invite you to celebrate with us at

 for their
 Big Birthday Blog hop!  They will be celebrating a BIG TWO!.  Yep!   They are celebrating their second birthday and we want you to join in on the fun!

There will be prizes for people who hop along .. hidden on blogs throughout the hop so make sure you leave a comment on every blog! 

I selected this adorable image from La-La Land Crafts called Mermaid Marci for my project.  Marci is quite  a party girl and she heard that Mad for Markers  was having a Birthday Bash.   Well, who doesn't love a party?   Marci headed right on over to celebrate the Big Event! 


I created my  project using Copic markers.   
Hair: E40, E42, E44,E49
Starfish: EY000, YR 02
Skin tones: YR0000, YR000 and Lips RV000, RV02
Mermaid scales , fin and top: BG000, BG10, BG32


I quilled the seaweed and Seahorse.  


I used Label One Spellbinders Nestabilities for the mat and attached to a gift bag. 
 Of course I filled the gift bag with a little wine....   
As I said... Marci really knows how to party!


I am entering this project in the following challenge:
Now, head on over to  Alicia's Blog - Time to Create!   She has something special in store for you!


Hugs,

  3. Mermaids are my second favourite thing to stamp (after fairies). I love the idea of adding quilling to a card.

    Cheers,
