DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY NEW RELEASE :: MERLYNDA


Although it’s Easter weekend for many of us, I'd like to share   some new releases in the Digistamps 4 Joy store this weekend.
One of them is this image called ‘MERLYNDA’, another mermaid that I drew myself, and is now available as a digistamp in the Digistamps 4 Joy store.

Here is the card I made with the new image :



I coloured the image using alcohol markers and a white gel pen, and fussy cut it out and mounted on a diecut.  Here is a better view :


The Diecut was mounted onto patterned DP and a turquoise CS card mat.  The base card is white.

I sewed on some beads and did some card embroidery with regular mercerized sewing cotton, and added a very pale blue satin ribbon bow.
