Siren of Pearls - What a Treasure

Hi friends,
Sorry I've been away - nasty virus hit our house so I've been a little under-the-weather!  

I did manage to get back to my craft room over the Victoria Day long weekend and create a little something from Make it Crafty called Siren of Pearls.   Colouring that hair cheered me up a bit!

I’ve had this design paper for quite some time and thought now was a good time to cut into it. The paper is Chiyogami – I found it at my local art supply store.   The sentiment is Amy R Stamps for C.C.Designs.    I cut the Cheery Lynn large Sunflower Doily die and added another layer using Spellbinders large scallop die.     I used the Cheery Lynn Olive Branches die as seaweed.

To give the mermaid a "fish scale" effect I used my blender pen and dotted over the coloured
image.  Image was outlined with TI, T0 and finished with 0
