Sketch Saturday ..Mmendel Illustrations

Hiya..Been busy this week I know ,but last one hehe ..I coloured this really pretty mermaid with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card ..I then cut her out using Tattered Lace Basic Ovals and did a pink mat to pop her on using card from Hunkydory..I used this also for the papers too ..These were also from Hunkydory from their Delightful Deco pad.. These are silky papers that add a nice shimmer to them,not my favorites because they are a little thin for my liking but they do look nice on the card..
For the shape on the side I folded a piece of card in half and carefully cut the shape out allowing for the depth of the oval and and just a bit more,then I fussy cut it out,then transfered it to the paper I was using..,this saved making mistakes on the best paper..Then I glued it onto the mat and fussy cut that out too ,not perfect but it is something very different .. The flowers are from CC English country Garden range ,I used the smaller flower on this card..The design merited two but I felt it looked odd so I added three,to finish I added a computer generated sentiment and some pretty resin roses to the center of the flowers..
Thank you for taking the time to pop by :)xx
