A Day For Daisies – Mermaids

Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to win a challenge which gave me 3 beautiful digis from a Day for Dasies.

This was one of them – It is called ‘Baby Play’.


The mer-mother and baby have been coloured with my trusty Promarkers and Flexmarkers I have tried to give the effect that the light is coming from above, as if they were under water.  Their hair is coloured using warm grey 1 and 3 and the blues used are cool aqua, soft aqua and caribbean blue.  Their skin is ivory and glacier blue.  The image was cut out using an X-cut die then distressed around the edges with Ranger distrss ink in Broken China.  The Mermaids were softly framed with blue and gold seaweed fronds created using a die from the Spellbinders foliage set, these were cut fom a scrap of peper that my friend was throwing out!  You see I ws right to save it.

I chose the palatte to match the Facebook Promarker colour challenge (below), which also put me in mind of water – My card seems much bluer in the pic that it actually is.  I might have to take another one.

I’ll also be entering these challenges:
