Under the sea

I could not resist this mermaid stamp when my sister showed me the one she had just got, I think she is just beautiful !  I spent for ever colouring her tail using two colours of luna light paints, I hope the shimmer shows up.  The background is also very shimmery but it looks a bit flat on here although I did use three different blue /aqua sprays. The seaweed at the bottom is part of a very ancient stamp and then I just added some Marine Frantage and a few sequins.  I'd like to enter this into a few challenges

  1. that is beautiful Joan, hope I hope that my card comes out half as good as yours!

  2. I can see why you could not resist her, she is beautiful. You have coloured her stunningly too. Thank you for joining us at Fantasy Crafters.

  3. This is lovely Joan and your mermaid is very beautiful, I can see why you couldn't resist her. Her tail looks amazing and it reminds me of mosaic tiles. However long it to you to colour it, it was definitely worth it. Your sea plants look great and I really like the sequins that look like air bubbles. Thank you for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Sandra X

  4. A magical under the sea card Joan, it looks fantastic.
