I {Heart} Mermaids

Good Morning everyone! It's Saturday...again and it's my turn on the 7 Kids Store Blog. Here's my card using Magnolia's Pisces Tilda. I love mermaids, and I just had to add her to my collection. She looks so cute just chillin' on her lilypad.

I colored her with my Copics but didn't have the right pink in my collection. So as an alternative, I used the pinks from the BIC Mark-It Permanent Markers 24 Assorted Mix. They blended beautifully. For the water, I used some green and blue shimmer chalks. Using Liquid Pearls in White Opal, I gave her a pearl headband. With a few taps on the back of the card while the pearls are wet, it flattens the peaks of the liquid.

The flower is from Petaloo Burlap Blossoms - Pistachio. It went well with the beachy theme. I pulled the silver sequins from the Sulyn Assorted Sequins Mix. I think the bling went well with the pearls and shells. I also added a string of pearls from an old necklace along with cheese cloth in the background.

This is my crafty share for you today, please take some time to join us at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog.
