This card is for my grandson...yes, that's right ...he loves mermaids and anything pretty and sparkly, so let's let him enjoy it before the world (almost inevitably) tells him that those things are not for boys.
The mermaid is an image from Digistamp Atelier - I would say this is not a regular digistamp, in that it is very heavily (although beautifully) sketched - and I found I needed a light touch on the colouring to make it work. I used seaweed cutting files from Miss Kate Cuttables, shell cutting files from Creative Pointe , a birthday sentiment stamp, liquid pearl, Promarkers, Distress Inks and Wink of Stella. I also (daringly I think, given my history of wrecking cards when adding a final touch!) added a dot of white gel pen to each eye - I've seen others do this to add light, so I hope it worked.
