Mermaid Tails and Seahorses

Mermaids are so magical, no one has proof that they're real, but many sea-folk could tell you they've met them.  In some stories they're mean and spiteful, and in others they're friendly and have sea-friends.  I prefer the sparkly fins, the long flowing hair and the way they watch our beautiful oceans.

I coloured this image from Crafts and Me with my Copics, then added some gems, Stickles and a flower. I think I add gems to every card, they're bubbles, snow, jewellery, buttons - they can be anything!

I layered some ocean themed papers with white cardstock and some Bazzill, doodled some borders and then tucked in a mini postcard, an acetate stamp and a 3-in-1 word ring - all from Tanya Leigh Designz.

Isn't she beautiful, with a gorgeous flowing tail, and a sweet little Seahorse.  I learned the background technique while doing a class at Kit & Clowder.
