Mermaids Galore!


Isn't she a stunner? Her name is Angelica, and she is one of Michelle Perkett's wonderful mermaid images which you can purchase (along with lots of other fab images) from her etsy store.

I have coloured her with Promarkers and matted her onto several layers, all in co-ordinating colours to match the DPs, which are MME Mabel Papers.


I added some ribbon, a button and some paper flowers from WOC to finish the card, I didn't want too much 'bling' as I wanted the image to be the focal point, and felt too many 'added extras' would detract from that.


I made this card for this week's challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio which is Mermaids Galore!

Thanks for popping by!
