Sea Life.............

Hello I can't believe it's halfway through March already! Well at least I will make one post this month. Life has definitely got in the way of art and I coloured up this lovely image for a little stress relief! This beautiful mermaid is by Ike and I won it for being in the top 3 of one of their recent challenges - I was so honoured!

I coloured the image using my new favourites, Polychromos pencils, I cut it out using an oval die and the outside the box technique, I then printed off some shells, cut them out then shaped them using an embossing tool and used them to frame this beautiful image - I used a wooden word that I coated in marquasite glitter, all mounted onto a pearlised teal card - very simple!

I will enter this into Ikes latest challenge and Through the Craftroom Door I will also add to Pennys Challenge

Thanks for visiting I really do appreciate it!
