Shell Mermaid easel card

It is Tracey here with my inspiration post for July .This month  The Design Team had to create a project using  the theme of mermaids and use the colours teal and or tan..
This month our wonderful sponsor is Cute As A Button and I have used their  gorgeous shell mermaid digital  image which can be found HERE
I coloured the image with promarkers and used a crafters companion clear glitter overlay pen to give her tail some sparkle. I made the round easel shaped card using grande scalloped circle dies and kraft card.The die I used to create the swirls on the base is a die from sue Wilson from the Gemini range. The anchor and flourishes are  made using a memory box dies The tags are pre made from prima.The stunning flowers are handmade using the same papers I used on the project and a stamp and die set called crafty cocktail flowers and they are from joycrafts.
The stunning 4 looped  bow was created with 2 different colours of organza ribbon and created  using my Craft-deebowz bow maker ...It gives me perfect bows every time and is so easy to use

I found this lovely mermaid verse on pinterest and printed  it on my computer

I hope you like my project and that it inspires you to join in the challenge for July where anything goes with a handmade bow
Happy crafting

What a great card. The card shape reminds me of a clam shell - sort of. Beautiful colors and your coloring is so fabulous. Another beautiful project. Thanks Tracey.
