Hi there 🙂 It’s been ages since I’ve used a Selina Fenech image in one of my makes!! Although her images are considered coloring pages, I shrink them down to cardmaking size 🙂 Too beautiful not to share! This particular image was a freebie on her Facebook page awhile back. I colored this beauty up with my Copics, then added some Wink of Stella to the tail for some shimmer. I was actually able to get a picture that shows this shimmer!!!!
I matted the image up with a couple of coordinating pieces of card stock, then set it aside as I worked on the base of the card. I cut a circle background with a cool die from Crafty Meraky out of white, and layered it over another piece of white, for a faux embossed background that reminded me a bit of bubbles. I then arranged an assortment of seaweed and shells that I die cut with Marianne dies along the bottom border. A pretty pink sentiment die cut was tucked between the image and the die cut arrangement. I carefully arranged pearls around the seaweed and shells, and even more carefully, added teeny pearl accents to the mermaid. In keeping with me trying to use stuff from my stash that’s been sitting unused for forever, some Flower Soft was the perfect finishing touch!!
I’d like to enter this in the following:

Sorry about the missing words on my comment above, Susan. I meant to say “So glad you joined…” My mouse is not behaving. xx
You’re not on my commenting numbers, but I’m being a rebel!! Ooh la, la this is fabulous. That tail has so much texture and l love that you managed to get a sparkle pic! Those are always a pain.
Thank-you for joining us at The Paper Shelter for our UNDER THE SEA challenge and good luck with your entry.
