MAKE IT CRAFTY'S MERMAID

I used a little mermaid  image from Make it crafty and created this card


The image is coloured using alcohol markers, a white gel pen, and has sequins sewn into the hair



On my card I used the following :

turquoise CS base 
checked DP
dark turquoise/teal CS mat
diecut made from a white polystyrene food tray and embellished it with sewn on sequins and beads


There is a circle punched out of the white CS to reveal the  CS mat underneath, and I placed a flower and satin bow in it

silver glittered peel off sentiment that was the word LOVE written on one line, but I cut it n half to make a sentiment block
There is a corner diecut :

I also used pearls in the other corners.

thank for visiting today.
