Party Time Tuesdays photo inspiration challenge




Hi friends!  Party Time Tuesdays is challenging everyone to use this photo as inspiration:



I was given this really gorgeous mermaid image by Crafts and Me to use, and I have to say, I was a little intimidated by all of the detail!  :)  I used my Copics for the mermaid and watercolor pencils for the water.  Mermaids make think of pearls, so I dug through my stash and found this little strand that I curled into swirls and adhered with glossy accents.  The glossiness was a bit apparent, so I sprinkled some Prisma glitter on top to cover it up!  ;)  I die-cut the image and mat with my Grand Nestabilities ovals and added that to some MME patterned paper and blue cardstock.  I wanted to keep this card simple so the image would take center stage.

If you feel inspired, link up!  Check out the other DT cards here:


Thanks so much for stopping by!
