Less is More week 22

This week the challenge over at the Less is more blog is Colour... Shades of Blue.

I wanted to use one of my own digi images - Klimt style mermaid - I actually made two cards, but the first card turned out a disaster so I scrapped the first idea and came up with this second card.. here's what I did - Using paint shop pro., I spun her on her side, put a frame around her... added some text and a Happy Birthday. I am lucky that I have a wide selection of gorgeous foils to play with so I printed her out from my laser printer and then foiled her using 2 different colour glossy blue foils. I lightly coloured her in with several shades of blue promarkers then added glitter on her hair, fin and tail and around the frame. I think that mounting it onto the navy card really makes this card work.

Thank you for visiting - see you soon...
Hugs

I have now added this as a framed mermaid just incase you would like to buy one to print out on your own cards - HERE
