These 2 pics were taken before completion, to show the foiling and embossing more clearly.
I used a cuttlebug folder(bird on grass, bird hidden behind portrait) to give a seaweedy feel, and Tim Holtz distress inks to age the dp layer(though that isn't showing too well on the pics)
The inspiration for the mermaid is this weeks HDH Macabre Mondays Challenge #94 "Menacing Mermaids, although she has been stuck in my head for quite some time ...mwahahahaha...
Challenges I would like to enter this for are;
The Corrosive Challenge# 121 Ribbons and Bows(couldn't manage girly)
