Water World Mermaid

     A summer card today, despite my recent focus on autumn cards in a desire to get summer over and done.  But this one has a cool color combo so it's almost as good.  :-D

     The image is from LeAnn's World 101 and is the freebie given for their monthly Progressive Challenge. 


I used the sketch again from Sketch Saturday 
but this time flipped side to side.


Colored with ProMarkers
Glossy Accents added to image
Image is fussy cut
Background splash cut with Memory Box die
DCWV background dp
Starfish ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Your lttle mermaid is just as cute as can be Connie!! I love that bit of sparkle you've added to her as well! I agree about Summer, but I do love this color combo with the blues and greens!! :) HUGS

Monica, The "splash" piece is actually the center piece of a flowery frame die by Memory Box which would normally be thrown away. I decided to try to use it instead of waste it. :-D
