It's time to show off the new release digi stamp over at Jellypark and here she is!  Such a cute mermaid!  I've used a scalloped edge card blank as a template to draw around as I've used some hammered white card (sort of a bit like watercolour paper) as the base.

Image has been coloured with Promarkers and I've cut out the image leaving a tiny white border around the edge.

The card base has been coloured directly onto it with Aquamarkers and I'm quite pleased how it all turned out and I've just realised that the card blank ishaped a little like a fancy shell!  I'd like to say that it was planned, but I'm not that good!  I've inked around the edges with a Chestnut brown Whispers almost dired out inkpad.

And look - no embellishments!
