First New Release Image....

Karleigh Sue New Release

Top secret digi release can now be revealed - below are my 2 versions of 1 of the new mermaid images at Karleigh Sue.

I used a scallop shell template to make the front of the card.
Brushed Pearlex over it (doesnt show well in the photo) to give it a shell like finish - then sprayed with hairspray to seal it.
Layered the inside of the card with some paper from JeJe from my stash.
The digi was coloured with the following promarkers
Mermaid Skin - Apricot, Oatmeal and Blush
Mermaid Hair - Walnut, Burnt orange, orange and amber
Mermaid Tail - tea green, pastel green and mint green
Merman skin - coral, sunkissed pink, blush
Merman Hair - Walnut, cocoa, sandstone, satin
Merman Tail - olive green, marsh green and moss

I used some glossy accents to make bubbles.
Attached a pearl to the inside of the card
and 2 shells and a paper starfish to the bottom

This colouring was inspired by a blue card I'd seen coloured

Mermaid skin - tea green, cool aqua, pastel blue
Mermaid Hair - true blue, azure, sky blue
Mermaid body of tail - French navy, Agean, azure blue
Tail - sky blue, Artic Blue, powder blue
Merman skin  - pastel blue, powder blue, blender
Merman Hair - turquoise, marine, petrol blue
Merman body of tail - midnight blue, china blue, cobalt blue
Tail - sky blue, artic blue, powder blue

I mat and layered some water effect papers that I found in my stash.
Attached a length of white lace down one edge
And made a turquoise flower from some  Tulle.
Curled some thin slithers of same coloured card and attached behind the flower

Happy Crafting
