Whimsy April Release Day 2 - Oceanna

Hi everyone, I'm back again with day 2 of Whimsy Stamps' April release and this time I made a card with this uber pretty mermaid called Oceanna from the Art by MiRan collection . Oh I had soooooo much fun making this.

I have to confess that I really love my make here, love that 2 tone tail and her hair.I coloured her with my distress ink markers, and I've listed the colours below for you.

Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Twisted Citron, , Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord

I used some old papers from my stash, I thought the colours and patterns were just perfect.

I cut a little mound to sit her on using one of the dies from Whimsy's Stitched Border Die Trio. I added some little sea creatures too.

I added lots of Wink of Stella to the mermaid's tail and the sea horses, and I finally managed (with much twisting and turning of card, lights and camera), to pick up some of the sparkle in a photo!

Finally I added the following embellishments from The Ribbon Girl.

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:
