Little Mermaid - LOTV

Good morning everyone,
I'm here with my second post of the month for the Lili of the Valley Design Collective. I've used Little Mermaid 2 which is one of my all-time favourites - some of you might have seen me use this one a couple of times already but I haven't coloured her with Inktense pencils until now. After I made a shaker card last month I've been itching to do another one and I thought this image would be perfect for it. The papers are Beach Bliss (hand-stitched) and I've used one of the Sentiment Tags too (with Glossy Accent water drops to go with the underwater theme!). I've also used:
Lace, charm (with added Pearl paint), twine (I used three different colours for the plait around the image) - Ribbon Girl
Flowers (also with added Pearl paint and Glossy Accents), pearl embellishments - Wild Orchid Crafts
Cheesecloth, beaded berries - Live and Love Crafts
Frantage: Shabby Blue































































Thank you so much for stopping by today - I really appreciate your lovely comments.

Have a great weekend!

Rebecca.

  29. Oh, how absolutely divine! The aqua colours and pretty details are perfect for an underwater theme and these mermaids are the cutest!
    I have the stamp with the 2 mermaids on and it is one of the very few LOTV stamps I haven't used yet...will have to get that amended very soon!
