Cute Mermaids At DigiStamp Boutique...

Hi all! Wow the summer hols are flying by. I planned to do so much late night crafting without all those horrid early morning school runs to get up for, but the kids are totally wearing me out! I'm whacked by the time they're asleep. 

It's taken me days to get this one finished. It's a DT make for DigiStamp Boutique using these fabby new Cute Mermaids. They are on 'offer of the month' at the moment too!

 * Offer of the month - Cute mermaids

Here's how I made it;

*In my free program, 'Page Plus' (dowloaded HERE), I opened up a digital paper from the Echo Park Splash Collection...which you can download HERE.
*I then opened up PNG (transparent) version of this mermaid over the top of the paper. This leaves mermaid blank ready to colour with my Copics...but the background patterned. She looks like she's in the sea don't you think?...
*I printed off another mermaid at the same size, so I could layer up just her head & hair to give her hair a bit of movement.
*I coloured her using Copics, white pen & stardust Stickles.
*The other papers are also Echo Park Splash. I used a craft knife to cut around the swirly pattern of the orange one, and tucked it up over the mermaid layer like a wave. 

Other ingredients;
Whimsy Stamps Corner dies,
A Sizzix Sizzlits decorative strip alphabet die,
Sizzlits fish die (I think this was from a Hello Kitty set),
Card Candy,
Shimmer Dots,
On The Edge card blank.

 Here's another piccy...I think it shows the shimmery tail a bit better.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
PS...if anyone can still hear those annoying audio adverts for random household products when you visit my blog, could you please let me know. I *think* It's sorted now..but really not sure. Not sure why they were there in the first place....very annoying!

Such a beautifully designed card Jenny. I really love the way you have placed the image inside the paper so she looks like she is under water. Thank you for explaining how you did this.
Your colouring is wonderful and I love all the detailing too.

Gorgeous card Jenny, fab colouring and such beautiful detail. I hope you can sort your ads out soon, I never have my volume up anyway when blog hopping as I don't always like people's taste in music that's often loaded in their side bars. :) Donna ♥ x
