Design Team Project - Mermaid Tails

Welcome to my latest project, for today's page I've used the Kaisercraft Mermaid Tails collection....

I started off with a sheet of mermaid tails dolphin and using a plate as a template I drew round it, but not over the mermaid, then cut out it, leaving the frame in tact and cutting around the edge of the mermaid so she stayed attached to the frame.

For my next layer down I used a sheet of mermaid tails coral reef, for this one I used a bowl for my template as it was slightly smaller than the plate to give me a layered effect. 

I then foam padded these levels together on top of a sheet of mermaid tails ripples. 

Now for the fun part... DECORATING! I kept this one a little simple, using the base bars from the three sheets to add bars across the page. I added glitter card die cuts to add a little under sea sparkle to my bushes behind the mermaid... For this I used one of my favourite IO dies -
