Playing With Digis

I stumbled across these gorgeous digi papers from Bearly Mine Designs, and immediately got some.  I was looking for lavenders and blues so I could finish the wedding planner that I have been working on.   Love how these papers print out!  I wandered over to The Pixie Cottage, which is one of the challenges I try to play along with each week, and decided to use my new digi papers and their sketch and/or sparkle challenge.  I like how The Pixie Cottage always provides a sketch along with an optional additional element in their challenges.   You can use either sketch or element, or both together.  The Play Date Cafe has pretty, calming colors for their challenge.  The image I used is from the "Violet Peacock" decoupage sheet from The Crafty Purple Frog.  I layered a gold doily behind the image and digi paper, added the seam binding I dyed and wadded.  The pretty leaves are from a Marianne Design Creatables die.  I just punched it out of white CS and tapped some ink sporadically over it.  I added some Stickles to the beads and bubbles on the mermaid, though that didn't come out well in the picture.
