Watery Mermaid


Hello everyone,


Quick post from me today. Silly title I know...is there any other type of mermaid?!


I have a tag for you today made especially for one of my lovely teamies from Speed Craft Challenge,Debs. She is very generously hosting a challenge every month on the theme of the Zodiac,starting of course with Aquarius.
Now, my other half is an Aquarian and a bit of a miserable old so and so at times so I thought I'd better go with the mermaid and water theme instead as of course that sign is a water one.....see,its all carefully thought out....








Debs Challenge is here and I'm sure she'd love to have you enter too ;)



Dylusions sprays,pro markers,stamps are Stampotique and Kasiercraft. I also added some glossy accents to imitate water droplets.



Have a great weekend everyone
