MERMAID


I made this (so good to be making ATCs again!) for Theme Thursday's challenge which this week is beach/nautical. I hope this counts for the general sea theme as I love this image of a mermaid from a Teesha Moore collage sheet.

I made the background with sand yellow card from my stash and stamped it with a swirl from Impression Obsession which, because of it's dotty nature, made me think of sand! The shrine is from a digi collage sheet (086) from Paper Whimsy which I printed onto mid-brown card.

As finishing touches I added a small brass plaque which says "limited edition" and some watch cogs to the background. It's a bit off the wall this one, but I think that's what I like about it! It is available if you would like to trade for it.

Hi Rosie,

I 'lurve' mermaids so of course I love this ATC. I was wondering if you could tell me if the shrine is a stamp and who makes it.
