Mermaids home

Good afternoon, it's a lazy Saturday for me not going much planned, it's the last weekend before school starts so making sure everything is ready for 7am on Monday 

It's also the last weekend of the month so time for an exciting new release from Scrapper's Delights. We are carrying on with the under the sea theme from last month and there are some great props for you to add to your mermaids and fish themes.

I have used Sea Rock 1 - I chose to use the png file so I could add Pearl Mermaid 2 peeking out from the middle of the rock

I colored the image using alcohol markers then went over the top of all of it with an aqua colored marker to make it look as though it was all under water.
As I had used a deep red for the coral I chose the same to use as my matting card. 
I made a 6x6 inch card blank, matted this with the same red card and some digital design paper that looks like water. I recolored a piece of this to tine in with the image and matted this onto the same red card to contrast under my image.
A bubble die cut and some clear dimension drops just finished off the design.

Ingredients used

Head on over to the Scrapper's Delights Store to see all of the new releases.
