Mermaid - Sugar Nellie


Happy Friday to you and here I am with my post for Sugar Nellie.   Today's card uses Funky Kit's Mermaid digital image designed by artist Leanne Ellis.  I quite like mermaids and the mystical and magical stories that go with them.

I used my Silhouette machine to cut around the fancy scrollwork... I may never get that machine figured out but I love it when it does these little mattes.  The sentiment is computer generated and I outlined the edges with a Copic Multiliner pen.
Have you seen this?   
Sugar Nellie is looking for one or two new members and is having a DT call.  The call ends September 22 so hustle on over to the Sugar Nellie Blog for all the details.

There's always plenty going on over at Sugar Nellie so pop back in often because every day one of the gals on the DT features a  new project.  Also, don't forget to enter the Anything Goes challenge at the Sugar Bowl (remember to use a Funky Kits image) and there's always always plenty of inspiration and chatting on the Sugar Nellie Facebook Fan Page.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Being that we live practically across the street from the "sea" - actually the ocean - I hear the song on a daily basis. I do love it here.
Marilyn your coloring is mystical - her tail is gorgeous!!!!!! Well really, the whole mermaid is gorgeous - and to be perfectly honest - your whole card is delightful!
