YNS Challenge #3 YNSC3

Hi folks,

Having fun this week playing with my fav summer theme of sea creatures!  And to justify it even more, I am playing along with YOUR NEXT STAMP's CHALLENGE #3 "Anything Goes"!   You can see their challenge details HERE! Deadline is Weds. midnight.

I already was toying with ideas involving 3D projects lately and wanted to do something within a frame, and so I put two'n'two together and here is my "Mermaids Playing in the Sun Shadow Box".

The frame was one I had for awhile, maybe two years?  And my stamps from Your Next Stamp are the adorable mermaid set, Happy Birthday Mermaid which I acquired about two years ago also! Coincidence - I think not! LOL!

Later I plan to embellish this even more once I find my darn box of tiny shells!  Maybe some charms? Heck who knows! :)

I am going to write up a more detailed post about creating this by the week-end, so return here if you care for that.

 Tomorrow I am going to be training for a volunteer program with the city's recycling program, so I have to cut it short here here it is.......I hope you all like it!  Good luck to all the entries over at YNS!!!

The pictures are through the glass which was not removable - sorry for that!

Stamp Set from Your Next Stamp is Happy Birthday Mermaid
which is part of the Under the Sea Collection listed under Fhiona Stamps.
plus some of their Glittered Skittles.  
Other supplies include Quickutz 6-inch Edge Dies, Waves and

chipboard scallop edge, and clear blocks. Copic Marker, seed beads, glitter and 
shadow box metal frame.
