Sparkle N Sprinkle Monochromatic Blog Hop



Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Monochromatic Blog Hop!!!

If you arrived here by way of Karin Martin, then you're in the right place.  If not, you may want to start back at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog to make sure you don't miss out on any of the fabulous prizes!
You must comment on each and every blog to be eligible.
Several of the prizes are "hidden" on various designer blogs.

I decided to use Set 477 - Serena Mermaid for my hop card.  
Instead of doing the traditional "sea" colors of blue, I decided to go with green.  My jumping off point was this fun green, sparkly mesh that I found at Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim at Mon Ami Gabi.
It was a great fit with Sparkle N Sprinkle's  Velvet Glitter - Luau Green.  I used the Luau Green as an accent on Serena after coloring her with my Copic markers and also on Super Adhesive Sheets to make the glittery green band under the image and the frilly leaves poking up on the green mesh.   The leaves were die cuts from Spellbinder's Foliage 2 set.  The Velvet Glitters are just awesome on the Super Adhesive Sheets and the Tear-ific Tape!  I also used my old standby, Sparkling Snow Glitter on her hair and body.



In addition to the funky mesh, I used a braided green ribbon (May Arts) in pieces sticking up like sea grass and then added some ribbon roses (May Arts).

    
Hope you enjoyed my monochromatic endeavor and the hop.
I'm the end of the line - hope you were inspired by our awesome design team!
Don't forget - make sure you comment on everyone's post to be eligible for prizes.  Prizes will be posted on the SNS Blog on Saturday - be sure to check back to see if you won!

Here's the hop rotation in case you missed anyone.
