Pearl the Mermaid with Long Hair

Morning my crafting friends, here is my second post for the  Design Team of

I do hope you come along and play and view all the other DT members fabulous creations. The theme each fortnight is 'Anything Goes'.

We have some wonderful sponsors this month and each offer prizes of 3 images so well worth joining in.

Our sponsors are:

My image comes from FaeryInk,   I stamped some rocks under the image then coloured her in with Promarkers before die cutting her out with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Six.

The papers were from Tattered Lace, I ran the lighter Green piece through the embossing folder Sea Garden and matted and layered it on the card with the Dotted Green paper as seen. I cut a width of patterned paper and wrapped that round the middle. I attached the image on top in the center of the card.

Out of Green Lace paper and Plain Green paper I die cut two of the Seashell Waves and attached these around and behind the image.

I die cut the Art Deco Swirl out of White card and inked it up with three distress inks, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Bundled Sage then heat embossed it with Tropic Pearl Lustre three times, I placed this on the left hand side of the card. 

I die cut a small sea shell out of beige patterned paper added this in the bottom left corner then added a small starfish to finish the card.
