Photo inspiration



I've taken my inspiration for this card from the photo challenge at Stamping Sensations.

As soon as I saw this colour pallette I thought of the mermaid stamp. So I took some card and using Sheena and Hobby art stamps created my scene. I then coloured the images with sparkle pens and aquatints.

I die cut a couple of nautical elements and added those too.

I'm entering this into the Stamping Sensations challenge and also over at the Snippets Playground as my die cuts came from the snippets box.

Beautiful! I keep going back to look at the colours and thinking "I can't work with those" but you've really nailed it.
