Little mermaids scene

Hello lovely people,

I have a Dies to Die For DT card to share with you and this is one that started with a very simple idea and got gradually more and more complicated!

My thought process for this card went along these lines...Oooh let's use some adorable mermaids...well, they'll need some waves to play around this would look cute as a scene in a frame...ok now I'm going to have to add an inked beach/sky backdrop...hmmm, that bottom right corner looks a little bare so I'd better pop in some seaweed and a starfish...and finally...ta da!

I used foam pads between the layers so the scene ended up pretty dimensional, and I really didn't want to add much more so I just mounted it on spotty paper and added a couple of cute embellishments.

  2. Super cute Kat. Love the candy coloured hair! So fun. Your ink work is fabulous on the background and I love the popped up box frame. Really gorgoeus hun. It's been too long since I've stopped into your blog. Life's been crazy with two new little people in our extended family and some dramas to boot! My sister in law had her bub 5 weeks early and my sister had hers 2 weeks late! So they swapped places in the line up, hehe. (They were due 2 weeks apart). I've been caring for my sis who wound up in hospital with a super nasty case of mastitis 2 weeks after bub was born, so it's been full on here, but so nice to put my nursing skills back to use! I've been loving seeing your gorgeous makes in the magazines and do a lil' happy dance for you each time I do. Hope all's well hun and send lots of love, Wends xoxo
