The Sea Is Calling

I recently treated myself to a few bits from the Graphic 45 'Voyage Beneath The Sea' collection.  Typically of me I waited until it has been discontinued to decide to buy it, so it wasn't easy to find somewhere selling all the bits I wanted!  
My mermaid image collection is getting larger though and I wanted something to go with them better.   Now I need some dies.... lol.
I have paired the papers with the super-cute 'Happy Little Mermaid' image from Aurora Wings that I chose as one of my images for winning Artist's Choice in March.  

Product list:
  • Kraft card blank from Michaels
  • Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath The Sea papers, ephemera card and embellishment

I had a little 'oops' moment when colouring my mermaid - my Wink of Stella wasn't flowing too well, so I gave a little squeeze and a blob landed on the mermaid's tail.  At least it went in the right place, but she is somewhat more glittery than I was aiming for!
