Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 256

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 256 - Sketch

Here's my card for the design team.

Such adorable digis from My Grafico and I just did some layering, to follow the sketch. I embossed the white panel. I cut out the images and colored them with Copics. For the mermaid, after I colored her fins then took a rag and added some Copic blending solution and pressed it on the fins. It then picks up some of the color giving the fin a more realistic look. For the turtle I added some crystal glazing and mounted him above a die cut scroll. Naturally I needed some gems for her bracelet and necklace. That's it!

Still time to get involved with the current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.
