Tiddly Inks Challenge - Nature Movie #58

I hope the day has treated you well :)

This is my entry for my second Tiddly Inks challenge.  I purchased some absolutely gorgeous stamps last night from their store ... so in love with these images! 

I'm only supposed to purchase 2 digis a month ... he he he .... I think I am well and truly over that quota.  It was an agreement I came to with my Husband ... and he's a bit annoyed with me that I didn't honour it ... but it is my Birthday next month so I suggested it was my Birthday gift and he's happy with that as now he doesn't have to go shopping.

This image is one of the ones that I purchased .. she came in a set of five.  She made me think of the movie Splash!  I loved that movie as a girl and always secretly wished that I was a mermaid.  So this gorgeous little mermaid brought back some lovely memories and inspired my card.  I think that a mermaid qualifies for Movies with Nature in them ... after all she lives in the ocean with all the other wonderful creatures.

Well enough waffling from me .... I'm really pleased with how this card turned out.  Coloured the gorgeous image with the following copics :-
Skin - E000, 00, 02 
Hair Y21, Y28 + YR23 and then added some gold spica pen for highlights (hard to see in the picture)
Tail - R000, 00, 02 and then went over the top with gold icestickles
Water - BG000, 01

The ribbon is a lovely Stampin Up ribbon as is the lovely paper, from my blog friend Shirley.  I embossed the blue card with the cuttlebug and then added some little Droplets from Kaiserscrapbook.

Thankyou for enjoying my card :)
