Mermaid Tag

Over at  Dilly Beans Stamps the challenge is Mermaids! I love Mermaids....and I had a great time creating this tag- but its hard to get a good pic.  

I started with watercolor paper, used my Tim Holtz die, then spritzed with water and used my Inktense pencils.  I then added some Glimmer Mist in Denim Blue, and let that dry. I then dabbed some Lumiere gold paint over it, added more water, and brushed. I used a Unity stamp colored with Distress Markers for the seaweed/flowers which you can't really see in the pic, then I added a sticker I got from Amy Tangerine in a pkg from Winners (yay for finding scrappy stuff at Winners).  I colored her with copics and added some of the gold to her tail.  The ribbon is vintage seam binding.

Thanks for stopping by!
