Come out of your seashell


















For this card I used the digi stamp Water Babe from A Day For Daisies. The tails were coloured with just "normal" coloured pencils and then painted with metallic sand paint to get the right glow. For the skin I used ProMarker - Almond (I actually tried ProMarker for the first time hehe). I covered the mermaid's head with sea glass in green and brownish.

The shell template came with the July issue of Crafts Beautiful. I printed the template on light purple paper. Then I put a layer of Metallic Sand Paint on it. I decorated with some molluscs, sea glass and freshwater pearls.
