Enchanted


I have three granddaughters all about the same age, who love mermaids, as do I.  When I was I child I always expected to turn into a mermaid ... but, strangely, never did.

This lovely image is a dream to colour and this time I used some lovely ombre paper I had in my stash (sorry no idea where it came from) and diecut frames (white, blue, silver).  I stamped the sentiment on vellum because it kind of looks frosted like bottle glass you find at the beach, and pearls because mermaids always have pearls.
Image coloured with Reno pens and touches of Kindyglitz.  3-2-1:  3 pearls, 2 fancy diecut frames, 1 image.


Image: Mo's Digital stamps
Diecut frames: Spellbinders
Sentiment stamp: Hero Arts with black Stazon ink

Oh how beautiful Carol - pity about not turning into a mermaid :-(. But this is so beautifully coloured one would think you may have met one :-) The vellum for the sentiment is the perfect accent.
Blessings
