Mermaid couple

This weeks challenge, at Glitter n Sparkle - is a BINGO challenge...
Look at the bingo board on the blog and pick a line...
I picked the .. "diecut / digi image / buttons"  line.

My image this week, was 'Mermaid couple' from Stitchy stamps.
I loved playing with this image!
I used my watercolour pencils to colour the image and 
added a few extra (hand cut out) bubbles and a little splash!
I used a dovecrafts die to cut the shape round the image, then
my fanciful flourish die for the swirls.
The 'seaweed' is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
I rooted around in my stash to find some papers in the colour I wanted...
and came up with these papers. ( My fave colour at the mo...
I recently decorated one of my craft room walls is this colour!!)
I think these were the first 12 x 12 papers I bought!
Docrafts papers, but I can't remember the name of them.
The buttons are also form the docrafts range.
I chose not to put a sentiment on this card  -
I couldn't quite decide what to put!  :)
