Mermaid Elegance

Hello there 🙂  It’s another Sunday, which means that it’s my turn to inspire at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook Group.  We have a challenge going for this month, and the theme is Summer/Seaside.  There are literally hundreds of gorgeous images at Ching-Chou’s Etsy store that can be used to create something in this theme!!!  I used the beautiful Midnight Tender, and colored her up with my Copics in my all time favorite color combo 🙂

After cutting the image out, partially with a stitched rectangle die, and partially fussy cut, I chose some pretty black and white printed paper pieces.  I matted the pieces with red, then tied some white twine around them before popping up the image on some foam dots.  I used both a Tim Holtz and a Recollections die for the sentiment, and added a pretty red blossom and some glitzy dots to finish it off 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
