Friday, April 4


I have made two cards today but I am only posting one for today! I have made this card for two challenges. One was over at Card Concept   and they wanted a Butterfly Theme, so instead of a shell on my mermaid's bodice I used a butterfly and like the way it contours her shoulders even better! The second challenge was over at Just Add Ink and they wanted lots of layers and I did that with the scales of her tail!I finished her all off by rising from the sea with my buttered buttons technique~Enjoy!
Now for the punches that I used.

Heart -very venilla sponged in Pink Pirouette FACE
Window Punch-Crisp Cantaloupe sculpted for her right arm
Build a Bird- waist,hips, tail end
Pansy Punch-tail
1/2" circle - scales
Heart- sculpted for her left arm
3/4" circle hip

What an awesomely fun mermaid. I especially love her scaled tail and the foamy sea she is surounded by.
Cheers, Dianne
