The little mermaid

Hi Peeps!

I`m a bit late today and i`m sorry for that. I have been at work and i didn`t manage to finish my card yesterday. So i had to do the last embellishing today. I will do this very short (at least i will try, lol)

I chose to use The little mermaid for today`s card. You can find it here. Originally i was going for an other image but i am getting a new craftroom so everything is a bit all over the place. And of course i couldn`t find the image i was going to use, lol. That`s the prize for beeing a messy head, lol.

The panel at the back is from the little yellow bicycle. I got it from my friend Johanna in Sweeden. Thanks sweetie! The blue ribbon around the image is actually some leftovers from the table decoration i used for my wedding last year. I also used some shells i got in a candy from my friend Dorthe aka Pipserier from Denmark. I think they fit perfectly to the theme of the card.

After i coloured the image i painted it with smooch to get the shimmery effect. The great thing with smooch is that it comes with a thin paintbrush so you can paint it on, instead of the glimmermist that has the spray bottles. It is impossible to get a presitional work done with these. Not to mention that it doesn`t curl up the paper as much as the mists does. I also used glossy accent to make the water bobles.

I just had to put on a metal mermaid too, lol. It kinda screamed to me that it wanted to be on my card. I really sounded schizzo there for a moment, didn`t i? lol.

There is still possibility to join the Gems and Pearls challenge over at Crafts and Me Challenges, so run as fast as you can to your crafting area and create a little something for us. I KNOW you just loooove both gems and pearls, lol.
