Mermaid with Punches


This idea was inspired by a cute card I saw by Stamp Mom on SCS. For the mermaid I used a 1 1/4" circle punch in Blush Blossom for head and body. The tail was first embossed with a Cuttlebug borders folder in Taken With Teal and punched with medium oval and 5 petal flower for tail. Her hair is Tangerine Tango and the scallop circle and oval were used. I drew her face on and gave her some blushed cheeks and popped her up a bit on dimensionals.
The background was one by inking the Bubbles Cuttlebug folder with Cool Caribbean ink and then running it through the Big Shot. The seaweed is Sizzlits Little Leaves in Celery and the Martha Stewart branch punches in Kraft and More Mustard.
