Crafty Gals Corner - Challenge #99 - 3 of a kind

It's time for another challenge with us at the
This week we are crafting in 3's with Challenge #99 3-of-a-kind
... use 3 of something on your project, eg 3 flowers, 3 gems etc

~~~*~~~ Our sponsors this week are ~~~*~~~

Prize: 3 digital images below

Conie Fong
Prize: 3 digital images


Today I have used the cute Ariela Mermaid digital stamp from Conie Fong Art, one of our generous sponsors this week.

My "3-of-a-kind" includes 3 roses and 3 sets of leaves.
There are also 3 orange sea urchins and 3 blue spiral shells in the image.
I have also included three types of shaker elements in the window
(2 sized clear sequins + clear beads)

I have coloured Ariela using Copic markers (details below).
I have matted a 6 1/2" sheet of patterned paper and made the shaker frame using the same navy cardstock.  To make the scalloped frame, I adhered five layers together, adhered the image panel to the base, added sequins & beads, adhered an acetate panel then topped it off with a final scalloped frame layer.

Here are a couple more photos, taken in daylight.

Can you see the sparkle in her tail?
