Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge blog: Challenge #22

This is my entry to Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge blog, this time we have a scketch to follow:
I used Tutti Frutti stamp from Michelle Perkett that I colored with colored pencils and blended with gamsol (thanks Lynne!!! I love it!!). I hope you can see the resemblance of the scketch in my card! The card is simple, but I did so many changes to folllow the scketch until I was pleased with its final look.... The coral behind the mermaid is a from Fred She Said stamp and I colored also with colored pencils blended with gamsol.
On one of my trials to follow the scketch I tried two different kinds of glitter glue on a scrap of black paper, it´s amazing how different they look on withe paper.... so I decided to apply this one because it gives a bue-green-ish color on black background. There is also a bit of glitter over the mermaid´ pearls and on her tail. The sentiment is handwritten with white gel pen.
This week I hope to be able to do some crafts, I really need it but I can not find the time these days... Hope I can make it this week. I just realize I have 27 followers, thanks so much!! have a great day!
