Michelle Perkett Challenge #35 - Cutting, Cutting, Cutting!

Happy Monday morning, it's warm and muggy in my neck of the wood, just finished raining, didn't help much with the heat.
The challenge this week was to use punches, or spellbinders, any thing that will cut, even to use fussy cutting.
I chose Harmony Mermaid for my card this week.  I used some Aleene's Paper Glaze on the water, to make it shiny and give it some depth.  I layered her on card stock then used the Fiskars corner punch for the final layering.  The designer paper is from Kate Knight paper pad, and I used the Martha Stewart dots border punch on the sides.  The flowers I cut out with my Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge, then added a purple gem.  So I think I pretty much fulfilled the challenge of using punches.  Of course, she was printed on neenah card stock, and colored with copics.  I added a bit of glitter to her body and hair.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday and have a great week!
