I had so much fun creating this card. I got to see my idea come to life. I started with taking Tim Holtz Distress Ink in tumbled glass and took the direct to paper technique, tipping it so it looks like waves. I added sequins to add to the mermaid scales technique. I really wanted to use chunky glitter, an idea I saw from Paper Drama Sea Nymph card, but I didn't have any on hand. I added the tail using Violets from Copics, the Hair is a series of using Greens, and the fin is using BV's .
I added water details like spots around her tails and by her eyes, and stomach. Just give its that "sea" look.
