and the inside:
My background was made using a wave stencil and three colors of Distress Ink. I started with one color, randomly sponging it on. I took the stencil off and flipped it around, then sponged on the next color. Repeated for the last color. I printed out this sultry mermaid digi and colored her up with my Spectrum Noir markers. The sentiment came with the mermaid. She was fussy cut and sits at the bottom of the ocean on cork 'sand'. A few holographic dots as air bubbles, some Stickles on the fin veins and scales, and she's done!
