Ivy Mermaid

Hi there ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m here to share my DT inspiration for the current Creative Fingers challenge (bet you thought it was CCK Challenge, lol). Our fabulous sponsor this time is one of my favorites, Ching-Chou Kuik ๐Ÿ™‚ I have used the gorgeous Ivy Mermaid image for my card, and colored her with Copics, adding a few accents and highlights with my white Posca.

I had all these big plans when I started, to use the ivy dies and embellishments that I have. Or should I say, THOUGHT I had, lol. All I could find was the stencil that I used!!!! I inked it with a few different colors of Distress Inks, then used a punch to round the corners to line up with the image shape. After inking the edges, I carefully sprinkled some silver embossing powder to coordinate with the die cut sentiment and flourishes. Some clear Nuvo drops scattered amongst the ivy, and around the image, finish this off ๐Ÿ™‚

I’d like to enter this in the following:
