Commissioned Mermaid Card

Morning Everyone...

    I was asked to make a mermaid card for one of my grooming clients... her specific requests were that it have no fish on the card, not to sexy a mermaid and have her personal sentiment.... no problem! I searched for the right mermaid and came across an artist I had not yet seen "Michelle Perkett". I immediately loved her style and bought several digis to work with....

Michelle Perkette Digi
Copic's as my medium
Paper Studio and K&C Papers
Martha Stewart Corner punch for my circle
Prima, WOC and Petaboo flowers
Sea shells, star fish and sand dollars
 I got some glittered twigs at Michaels around Christmas time has made great coral
