SOG FB Funday Challenge!

Well as I won't be able to get to a computer this weekend I am going to post this blog for my FB Funday Challenge. I am going to try to upload it via mobile but as the FB App is pretty crappy it probably wont we'll see! :)

For this card, I was instantly inpsired. It was kind of perfect really. I had just watched a movie on the Sundance channel that was Russian, called Mermaid. As anything with Mermaid in it catch's my attention I had to watch it. I ended up really enjoying the movie and Alica. She of course wasn't a real mermaid and as I reflected back on the movie I am pretty certain it follow the original Little Mermaid story only modernized. Here are a couple pictures from the movie and the advertizing. It is hard to find information on the web for me as I don't read Russian, but here is the one link I found of the movie. Here is another, the same place I got the first image. I just did a random search on google images for these two pix from the movie.

 So when I found out about the Funday challenge being a "Non Traditional Hair Color" I instantly thought of "Mermaid" since she wanted to be different so she dyed her hair green. So I got out my new favorite Under the Sea Mae and used the dreamscape beach scene for my background (not represented as well in the above picture as it was in the movie but it is close). Then I colored "Alica" with my copics (Sorry I don't have the numbers but if you want it let me know in the comment forum. ) Throughout most of the movie Alica wore a red and white striped shirt so I used that as her fin color. I thought yellow wold be a nice accent for her shell and shell top so I colored those then added yellow Liquid Pearl to them. I used the cloud stamps from the Sunny Mae stamp set and popped them up with dimensional's. All the paper I had was scraps that I don't know where they came from but the purple has a glitter too it. The boarder was cut and punched with my old Creative Memories bubble punch. Then I added some pearls to a few of the holes. Stamped the sentiment and then added stickles to her fin and the clouds. Thanks for checking out my card! :)
