A fish out of water

A fun new challenge site I've discovered is called FLUFFY FATBOTTOM'S TWISTED TUESDAY CHALLENGE and each week a wacky challenge will be proposed. This week's theme (the first week for this challenge site) is prompting participants to make a piece of artwork (any media) relating to a fish out of water or doing something not usually associated with a fish.

The size requirement for the piece must be either 3 1/2" X 5 1/2" or 4" X 6" (postcard sizes).

This was a lot of fun. I hope the scan will show all of the glitter and sparkle my mermaid out of water has. Click on the image and it will enlarge on your screen and you'll be able to see all of the glitz, sparkle and shine!

Since this was not my usual style or a type of challenge I've participated in before I also strayed from my usual color medium that I normally use and instead I colored the entire piece with gel pens. Yes you CAN layer colors and blend gel pens! Fun discover.

I'm not sure who makes this stamp. It might be Stamp Camp but it came unmounted and I'm not sure.

So here is my first Fluffy Fatbottom Twisted Tuesday challenge! Hope it will be ok.
