It's that time again for this month's sketch challenge- boy doesn't it come around quickly!! Quite a simple sketch this month so the world's your lobster (as Del Boy used to say- bless him!) or in my case your mermaid! Isn't she cute?
I've stamped with black & embossed clear as this helps to encapsulate the mica paints & give you a definite outline. The colours & effects that you can get with these paints are just perfect for this misty magical underwater design. Just layer onto mirror card add some twisted ribbon for "seaweed" & go mad with the mica flakes, shaved ice & glitter in the corners of the card blank. I've added some flourishes of Liquid Pearl dots & clear elements in the corners of the design.

Here's the sketch

Oops! Just realised I've cheated! Sorry Dorothy!
Spot the deliberate mistake!
