Delicious Doodles Challenge - Beside the Sea

It is my pleasure today to share with you my first DT project for Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  I'm delighted to have joined the Delicious Doodles Design Team and have the opportunity to work with Teri Sherman's gorgeous images.

Our Challenge theme this month is Beside the Sea,

Here's my card;
 As soon as I saw the challenge theme I knew which image I wanted to use; Steampunk Mermaid is one of my favourites, so it was a pleasure to colour her up for this card.

I coloured my image with Letraset Tria and Promarkers before adding some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen.  I then used Pigma Brush Pens to add some orange and pink contrast to the image along with a white gel pen for highlights.  I also added some white gelato to the background to give the clouds a little texture.

To create my card I used a 6 x 6 inch card blank to which I added some orange glittered mesh/netting fabric before layering on my image.  I'd printed my image A6 and then cropped it to make the beautiful mermaid even more predominant.  I added a sentiment tag with a bronze glittered brad, before adding some bronze gems scattered around my card.

That's all from me for now, Thank you so much for visiting with me today, and please hop over to the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of our very talented Design Team.

Bye for now

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges;
