Under the Sea..Scrappers Delights

Todays card was a complete bit of fun.. The image I had from Scrappers Delights was just the Mermaid , I coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah cars..I had her on my shelf and wondered what to do with her as I had no embellishments to suit ..so I thought I would use my lesser known talent and draw the background and a few embellishments on too..It took about nine hours from start to finish but she is so adorable..I mounted her onto some Kanban card I brought years ago as it is silver and has many colours on it ..looks great on this type of card..I then embossed som of Sheena's stamping card and coloured with Tim Holtz ink pads and a duster brush..love these they do not hurt my fingers so great to build colour on top of each other too.,Mounted that behind the main picture then added more silver ..To finish I created a card to fit from Centura Pearl..the actual image dimensions..not of any use as each of us use digi stamps at different sizes..thanks for taking the time to look :)xx

The lovely image of the Mermaid only can be found here

  1. Wonderfully coloured card, Christine. I can see how much work went into this, it's beautiful. Unfortunately, at Less is More we prefer to see some white space on our entries but thanks so much for entering and sharing with us.

  2. A beautiful beach scene and wonderfully coloured but as Anita says we do like to see some 'white' space on our CAS cards at Less is More.
    Thanks so much for sharing

  7. This is beautifully constructed, but I must agree with the others about the need for white space on CAS creations!
    Thanks so much
