The Little Mermaid


It’s my turn to host at Digi Sketch Challenge this fortnight and the theme is  Fairy Tale or Fantasy.We have the super A Day For Daisies as our sponsor.

Here’s my sketch :

dsc 25th march

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used the whistful Tiny Mermaid 2 by A Day For Daisies and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.I mounted the image on some pretty pearlescent textured card.I die cut different sized circles from a paper pad that was a freebie last Summer from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.The striped one has a piece of tulle overlaid,cut from the same size circle die.I adhered it to the parts that wouldn’t show when all the circles were in place.Three pink pearls were added to the smallest circle.I stamped the sentiment directly on to the base card and dotted the i with another pearl.Well you have to have pearls with mermaids,don’t you? 🙂

    Hi Lisa, your card is so lovely!! The papers go perfectly with the image you’ve chosen. Your sketch is really cool too, I have to give it a go with some other card -I was unable to use it now because my image was so big, sorry! I really like it though!
