 ♥Thank you Nikki♥
 for being our guest designer and sponsor this week!!!!
Now Here is what I created this week for the challenge

  I decided to make a cute  tag. I love making tags and they are always so fun to make.
For this tag, I used Pearl the Mermaid. She is a digital stamp by our sponsor this week. Is she not the cutest mermaid?? I just adore her really. I colored her in using various copic markers. I created bracelets on each of her arms using some Opal White Liquid Pearls by Ranger.  I took some glossy accents to her necklace, eyes, crystal ball and to the cute oyster friend in her hair. To finish this cutie off, I added some glitter to her body, tail and hair using my sakura stardust glitter pen and added a cute butterfly to her hair.

Okay so for the tag itself. I used a Tim Holtz tag because I like how big the size is and I covered it using some pretty blue patterned paper that I had in my stash. For the bottom portion of the tag, I used various shades of blue paint chips (yes the kind you get while shopping for paint for your home) along with some blue cardstock that I tore by hand for the water. I added some water ribbon with waves as well and this ribbon is from Anna Griffin. I added some thickers to spell "H2O", some handmade roses that I cut out of the pazzles  and inked up using my handmade glimmer mists. To finish the tag off completely, I added a cute brad to the top with some twine that I tied into a bow.
