Breathe in green

I love this image... it´s Just breathe mermaid from Michelle Perkett , I´m very happy with the result! the card is very clean and very simple to make too, as usual the most time consumming was to color the image, but it was the most fun part too!
I colored the mermaid with colored pencils and keep her in monochromatic gray tones, I just added a bit of color by coloring the flowers in coral. I started by gluing a piece of that gorgeous fabric in green you see at the bottom and trimming it around after instead of using a patterned paper. Punched a scrap of shimmering white paper and placed it on top of the fabric. Colored the image, cut around and placed it on the card with foam tape and finished it by placing the sentiment that comes with the image on the side.
And that´s all... I wish you could actually see the fabric, it´s so beautiful! I wanted to used it so badly... and this was like the right moment! thanks for stopping by ☺

I´m playing at the following challenges:
Case study #50
All sorts challenge #114: free and easy
Michelle Perkett challenge: let´s go to the beach
For fun challenge: sand/beach
