Mermaid Birthday Gift

I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided I needed to give it a try.  I purchased a small fish bowl and some glass gems, poured the gems into the bowl then got to work on the scene.  The images are from a Fred She Said set called Emma The Mermaid.  I printed out the images, then printed them again flipped so that I could have the fish bowl two sided.  I used toothpicks between the two sides so they could poke into the glass gems.  I used some hemp twine around the rim and cut out the word dies from a sticker sheet.

Aww, what a fun creation. We're so blessed that you joined us with your wonderful art last Challenge. We would like to invite you to link with us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving some inspiration from the Word of God in John 4:14 n which Jesus said, "But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a fount of water springing up to eternal life." Have a wonderful and blessed week.
