Mermaid

I made this card using this stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps it was sent to me by Choccy I think and has been sat in my stamped image drawer as I was scared to colour it in. I finally got the courage to colour it in last night.

She is coloured in with promarkers and I have added some stickles to her tail. The spotty paper was sent to me in a stash swap I think its papermania, and the flowery paper is from MME. All the edges have been distressed with my scissors and then had stickles put on them. The paper lace down the sides of the image has been coloured with promarkers to match.

The flowers are Prima e-line ones that have been coloured with promarkers to match and I have put a button in the middle of each. I have added some faux stitching to each of the little strips that go under the flowers.
