Mermaid Tilda

Good morning! I had a little bit of a play last night with a cute Magnolia image of Tilda as a mermaid. She is from 2007, so a little older - hasn't she changed over the years?

The card is a little different for me as I haven't used my sewing machine! All of the edges are distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool (new from Make it Crafty) and Tim Holtz distress ink from Tickled Pink Stamps. Those amazing pearl flourishes are by Flourish with a Bling from Tickled Pink Stamps as well. They are so pretty IRL.

I've coloured Tilda in Copic markers. I'm not so happy with the colouring on the rock, but I'll keep practicing! Tilda's tail and wings are coated in crystal effects and I've added loads of Spica to her hair as well.
Stamps: Magnolia - "Tilda som havsfrue" (I call her Mermaid tilda, lol), New Years Swirl (2008) and sentiment.
Papers: Websters Pages mini deck, Kraft and white cardstock
Inks: Mememto tuxedo black, Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Old Paper (Tickled Pink Stamps),
Copic Sketch Markers and Spica at You (Mad for Markers)
Other: Flourish with a bling - "Grace" in Latte (Tickled Pink Stamps), Kaisercraft rhinestones, Martha Stewart punch for flowers, raffia and charm from my stash, antqiue brad SU!.
So, I am going to enter this card into two challenges:
Just Magnolia week 63 - a recipe: 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 ribbon (I hope raffia counts as ribbon!), and
Stampavie and More #102 - Anything goes!
I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! I'm sitting looking out my window and the sky is beautiful blue and sunny - but it is deceiving - it is only 8 degrees celcius here in Canberra today - brrrrrr. It is much nicer to look outside than to actually BE outside! Bring on spring!!!
