Little Mermaid Inspired

Hi friends,
Recently, I attended the stage production of The Little Mermaid and it was absolutely magical! I was like a little girl totally entranced with the production, sets, dance numbers and of course--- the music! So when I pulled out the Mermaid For You stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I knew I had to create my own underwater seascape featuring Ariel.
Here's my card:
I used the Mermaid for You and Fintastic Friends stamp sets and coordinating dies (Lawn Fawn).  I colored all of the images with the no-line watercoloring technique using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
 I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen on the coral and on the mermaid's tail.
The background was created with the Brusho powders in Leaf Green and Turquoise.

I added a bit of Stickles for even more sparkle, sprinkled some sequins, and added a few Dew Drops for bubbles.

Here's a peek of the innie:
I really love how this card sparkles and shines in person *Ü*
 Tanks for stopping by today.
Have a great weekend and Happy 4th of July to those here in the states! Be safe!
