DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY :: NEW RELEASES :: SMILING MERMAID

It’s Sunday, and time for some more NEW RELEASES in the Digistamps for Joy store today!

 The new releases are a mixed bag of themes, and quite a number of BACK TO SCHOOL images too.  Click HERE  to link to the blog to see all today’s new release and the gorgeous cards made with some of them!

 This card features one of the new images I drew for the store, called "Smiling Mermaid" which I coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen for the highlights.  


Here is a closer look at the image:


I attempted to get the mermaid's tail looking 'wet' - does it look like it?  As embellishments I added some diecut shells, starfish, a seahorse and seaweed.  There is a string of pearls that I sewed on and a 'diamond' surrounded pearl gem:
