A Mermaid and her little friend card (Mari Digis images)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I created this background paper with my Oxide inks, some Perfect Pearls and water, then finished with a few drops of glossy accents all over. The silver sides are white card that I embossed with my silver embossing powder to match the embossed sentiment. 

The oh-so-lovely mermaid and seahorse are available at Mari Digis. I've added some Wink of Stella to the mermaid and seahorse too for that extra bit of sparkle. 

It's so difficult to take great photos here at the moment as we're in the middle of winter and there's sometimes not much sun to be found.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

  2. WOW! This is a stunning card! I am so impressed at how you were able to create the illusion of water! It has shine and shimmer and movement and I love that you were able to get that effect. And of course, the mermaid herself is beautiful! This is full of elegant details and I'm so glad you took the time to share it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
