Hi and welcome to the latest challenge at Fusion

I combined both the sketch and the photo for my card.

I created the background panel with Copics before drawing in the seaweed in the background, also with Copics.  I then used London Fog ink to stamp the plants and fish before die-cutting the top and bottom with a curved stitched die.

I adhered that to a white card base and stamped the sentiment on a curve to mimic the die-cut panel.  The mermaid was colored and die-cut with the co-ordinating die and I liberally added clear sparkle pen before adhering her with foam tape.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you'll check out the DT cards and have a go yourself.

Ink:  Amalgam, Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, X-Press It
Dies:  Mermazing (MFT), Stitched Based Edges (MFT)
