Shabby Chic Mermaid (A Day For Daisies)

Hi everyone!

Here's a card I've made using a Mermaid Digi from A Day for Daisies!

It's the first time I've used one of their images and this was quite different to what I usually colour but I really enjoyed it! I wasn't sure how to go about the hair at first, and I wanted to keep a pale shabby chic look. 

I'm quite pleased with how the whole thing turned out!

I used:

He loves me not - A Day For Daisies Digi
Coloured with Promarkers
Added liquid pearls in her hair & on the flowers, & glitter glue on her tail

Papers - Fairy Belle by Jodie Lee
Flowers - Petal Lu
Pink Seam binding & Lace 'Barbara' - The ribbon girl
Pink heart sparkler, Sentiment stamp & 2mm Pearl from Stash

Thanks so much for visiting!

I'm sooo pleased the weather is cooler! Feeling much better!
