I love...............

Glossy Accents! I had a bottle of this lovely stuff for a long time, but never used it until the recent Mermaid ATC swap, when I covered some sea shells with it. I am so chicken when it comes to trying out new things, but I loved the shiny, shiny wet looking sea shells.  This week's Every Inchie Monday challenge was ANIMAL, and I thought it would be fun to do a jellyfish. I figured that the Glossy Accents stuff would be perfect to give the jellyfish that wibbly wobbly translucent look. and I think it worked! What do you think?

The background is a teeny bit of a fibrous black paper. I used a white pen and a hint of pink marker for the body of the jellyfish, an unravelled bit of string from a tag for the tendrils and of course Glossy Accents.

Gosh, this is a short post, lol. I'll do better ( or worse, depending on how much you love/hate long post ) with the next one.

Oh Liz what an amazing rendition!
I'm not a fan of jellyfish - we see them a lot on the beach here at times.
A beautiful job.
Just love the little box in you last post and those images Oh my! where did you find such beauties.
Sorry I missed you last night will try again soon!
Big (not so slimy) hugs to you!

I just purchased some of that but have not yet tried it!
I wanted to use it on some goblet markers. I am not completely sure how I will do it, but I do have a few ideas, thanks to your inspiration!
Lovely ideas!
