Simply Betty July Challenge

For the July challenge over at Simply Betty Stamps, we had the choice of either a good or bad mermaid digi. I chose the good version. She was so much fun to colour.
I used shades of purple for her hair and while I made her tail grey, I added dots of the purple shades to represent scales.
This card was a perfect excuse to splurge on a memory box die. I loved the detail in this wave design.
The background was created by using a Sizzix die and then rubbing distress ink across the top to highlight the embossed design.
I placed gauze behind the mermaid and finally added some Flourish With A Bling Pearls in Dark Blue.


  1. Wow, the background and die combine perfectly to create the impression of water, awesome job with it and it sets off the beautifully coloured Roxie perfectly!
