Beautiful Mermaid

I had a blast making this one, the beautiful image was a joy to colour with my Promarkers and I had great fun layering fabric and ribbon scraps for the background.
The gorgeous image is a freebie from A Day For Daisies, you'll find it here, if you want to download it for yourself, they have several fabby freebies on the go at the moment.
The background for this card was made by layering torn strips of organza fabric onto some lovely card with a sort of subtle, pearlised oil slick pattern on it.  Next I added some strips of green spider's web and assorted lengths of ribbon, before going wild with dew drops and pearls, finishing with a corner detail made from random bling.
