Hello Sailor!

And welcome to my new project for 
Our amazing sponsor for this fortnight is

I got to work with the gorgeous  Mermaid image

She is so beautiful and delicate that I wanted to keep
that "floatiness", so decided to make a "single layer" card.

I started by printing 2 copies and "fussy-cutting" one
to use as a mask....
which allowed me to use inkpads to create a subtle background.
It is surprising how well the image stands out against
the soft blues and greens :D
Next up *still using the mask* I added stamped
images in equally soft colours to add depth and 
create a scene.
Now I could begin colouring with my 
adding layers of colours as each dried.
Finally a suitable sentiment stamp and some
subtle glittering 
before gluing onto a plain white card base.

I don't often do "delicate" or "subtle" but love
how this card turned out :D
I would like to enter the following challenges;
