I love the sea

Happy Tuesday everyone!

We have a new challenge for you over at digital tuesday. This week it was Anneke's turn to set the theme and she chose...

I love the sea.

Create a sea themed project.
This week we are happily sponsored by 2 cute rubber stamps. And the design team was generously given a few of their cuties to play with.
Picture
I used the digi Mermaid and friends, which can be found here along with several other cuties.
Here is my card.


Definitely one of the cutest mermaid images I came across.

It has been colored using derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. Copic markers for the skin tones.
Papers are from Bo Bunny (I think), Card Stock is Neenah (white) and Stampin Up (island indigo). I just love that new stampin up in-color.

I embellished with a little star button, silver cord and then did some stitching along the edges. Glitter was added to the mermaid, you can see it better if you click on the picture.

Would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you'd like to play along in this week's challenge simply click the digital tuesday logo in my side bar. We have a fabulous prize up for grabs from 2 cute rubber stamps!!
