Here is another wonderful digi image from Jem's Designs that I was given to work with. Her name is Mermaid Ocean. I love mermaids and was keen to play with this one. I hope you think I've done her justice.
I first inked the edges of an 8"x8" card blank with a blend of Salty Ocean and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks. I had the perfect backing papers for this image, they are both from the Enchanted Dreams CD by Joanna Sheen. I matted them both onto gold mirri card.
I coloured Mermaid Ocean with Promarkers and inked the edges with the same blend of Distress Inks before mounting her on foam pads. The small gold die-cut on her shell headdress is a piece of waste from a Spellbinder die that I thought looked like a crown.
The die -cuts are Marianne shells, starfish and misletoe leaves, but I think they look like seaweed. There is also a small Spellbinders die-cut from a leaf set. I printed an oyster shell with a pearl a few times and decoupaged the image.
I finished by coiling some lengths of wired ribbon and fixed them behind the shells to look like seaweed.
