Inkspirational Challenge 60- Mermaids


Here's my DT card for this week's Inkspirational Challenge.  This time it's a photo challenge:

Well, I chose this picture and to be honest, I could have picked any one of a dozen ideas from it ...but I went with this mermaid stamp from Enchanted Ink.

I stamped onto acetate, put adhesive on the back and brushed on several colours of mica powder. Then I attached this panel the layers of cards using eyelets and added gems for water bubbles.

I hope the picture will give you some ideas and that you'll come and join us at Inkspirational and also check out the projects of our fantastic design team.
