Hi, There!

We have a number of graduations going on and someone I know loves mermaids so this card was made with her in mind.  This is one of my favorite digital images and I had to fussy cut this one as I did not want to cover up the background and she just looks perfect floating in this background.  Thanks for stopping by, until next time, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Card Recipe:

This is a digital image from Aurora Wings - Ribbon Mermaid.  The background was done with Distress Oxide inks and spattered with water and then sprayed with Shimmer Spray.  Wish the photo could show the shimmer in the background as it is very pretty.

Sentiment used is from a Hero Arts collection. I used a piece of an old shower pouf and added to the side of the image for dimension and texture interest.  Added some liquid pearls to the image and lots of Wink of Stella.  Added pearls to netting and background.  Stardust glitter added to netting and fins.

Copic markers for image: 
Skin E0000 E000 E11 E93 
Hair YR000 YR00 YR01 YR68 YR07
Body/Fins BG11 BG32 BG13 YR21
