Blue Mermaid card (Hannah Lynn/Crafts & Me image)

Hi everyone,

I have another very girly card tonight, the image is from Crafts and Me. Isn't she a beautiful mermaid? I haven't played around with blonde hair very often and it's quite tough to give it a "shine", I must try to use less colour on the lightest shade but I'm afraid I'm a little heavy-handed with my copics at times hehe. Practice makes perfect they say so I will have fun trying different combinations.

I have used gorgeous blue pearl flourishes from my company, Flourish with a Bling. I designed these so they are named after my daughter Chloe. I have also used one of our beach houses from our Nicky's Beach huts set. See below for our free shipping offer.

All the blue paper is exactly cut so that the white glitter paper is equally showing around the outside of the whole card, how do photographs change that so it looks like it's all uneven??? Crazy or is it just my silly camera has a mind of it's own haha?

Flourish with a Bling have free shipping for all orders over $20AUD for the month of April! This includes Australia and worldwide! No matter how large the order, there's no postage cost. I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products that we've designed ourselves. Click HERE to be taken to our easy-to-use website.
