Mermaid

LOL - nearly 2 posts in one day!!!  Crazy Amigos challenge this week is mermaid. I started off with this tag. I wasn't totally happy with the colours but I love the expression on this child's face.  She looks so ticked off.



Then I remembered this lovely stamp:


I found the quote in my bottomless stash and some lacey stuff that exactly matches the cardstock.  I used plasma as my card base and stamped it with white ink.

Look who's creating again! Love both mermaids. The child mermaid is sweet and the siren is lovely!

I like both of these Carol. No wonder the girl looks ticked off - the poor thing doesn't know if she should swim or fly! The mermaid is lovely.

Shows your versatility.
I like the expression on the little girl's face, she really looks like she is having a bad day.
The plasma works beautifully on your card.

I like both of these Carol, as you say the expression on the child's face is good but the other one is a gorgeous image. Love how you have used it with that colour.
