Birthday Mermaid

It's been a while since I last joined in with a Pattie's Creation challenge, but when I saw the theme for the current one, I could not resist! It is:

Something for a Child - With Their Name

I've already made two cards for Casey and they were both a little bit on the pink side, so had to go for a very different colour scheme! She has swimming lessons so I thought the Mermaid image from Pattie's Creations was perfect. She's been coloured with Promarkers and I've added glitter glue to the bubbles and also the sea shell. I've inked the edges of the image with faded blue and green ink plus some chestnut brown and a bit of black.

The patterned papers and strip are from DCWV Retro 6x6 stack and the others are oddments from my stash. I've used the computer for the sentiment and to finish it off, I've dotted a line around the edge of the image and sentiment with liquid pearls.

So I am now organised! Her present is bought and it all just needs wrapping and writing!

  • Image: Pattie's Creations, coloured with Promarkers
  • Papers: DCWV Retro 6x6 Stack
  • Other papers: Stash oddments
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
  • Everything else: My stash
