Mermaid Tilda




I made this card without a purpose in mind.  I am going to just add it to my stash of "any occassion" cards.
Last month I had to go out of town for almost a week  due to a family emergency.  I stamped several images to take with me to help pass the time.  This is one of those stamped images.  I really didn't have a plan for her and I colored her without having papers picked out.  Luckily I had some papers in my stash that worked with how I ended up coloring her.  I painted over her tail, shells and a little in her hair with extreme glitter paint.  I use the hologram color and it works great when painted over colored cardstock and images I have already colored with copics. I used glossy accents for the bubbles.
