Sirena is coloured in with Letraset Promarkers, the tail and ear are Green shades, Bright Green and Lime Green and then the spots I dotted on with a darker shade, Forest Green.

The skin is coloured in using shades, Coral, Sunkissed Pink and Blush, Baby Pink was used to make the cheeks look rosy and Antique Pink on the lips.  The hair was coloured in using shades, Mustard, Buttercup and Ivory.  Purple Violet was used for the shell bra, eyeshadow and the harp.

I decided to print her directly onto a tag that I got from my Silhouette Machine and coloured in with a sea blue background.  The seaweed is also an image from Silhouette and surrounded with glitter to give a shimmery watery look. 
I used different sized flat bottom pearls to simulate bubbles and I found some tiny wooden fish which were given a glittery makeover to make shimmer and a small flatbottom pearl for an eye and I think they work quite well. Three small ribbons were added too.

The backing paper is called Argylle and is a free paper from the net.  The flowers are from Dovecraft's Back to Basics IV with a gem in the middle of each.  I then finished it off with tiny clear gems dotted about in Sirena's hair which I love.

Hope you like it x


  1. Lovely card! Thanks for the inspiration. I needed to use this image and just couldn't figure out how to separate the tail from the tummy. I love how you did it and hope I can do well too. Thanks again! Hugs, Robin
