Menacing Mermaids

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your encouraging comments on my previous post.

Menacing Mermaids is the challange this week at Haunted Design House. I only have one mermaid image, a digi from Crafts and Me so that's the one I've used. She has been coloured on the PC and touched up with Le Plume markers. On hind-sight I wish I had used brighter colours.

Here she is, let me know what you think.



Image - Digi Stamp from Crafts and Me
The Backing Paper is from an 8 x 8 stack I bought at Hobbycraft called Once Upon a Time.
Swirls - Marianne Designs

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges

Haunted Design House - Menacing Mernaids
Crafty Creations - Sparkly
Creative Belli Blog - Embelishment begining with G (I have used glitter)
Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Digi Images
Southern Girls Challenge - Anything Goes

Thank you for looking.

Take Care
Fiona. x


  1. Love this cool mermaid and all the sparkle here!

    Thank you for playing Crafty Creations Challenge with us this week. Do come again, we love to have you join in the chance to win fun prizes for a cardmaker. :)Peggy

  2. Great image and I do think that using the darker colors makes her look creepier. Dig those ears! Love the background and the lovely swirls. Thanks for joining us for MM at HDH. xxD

  3. I think the darker colours work well, great card. Thanks for sharing with us at Rainbow Lady's this week.

  4. Confused as I am sure you entered this on last week. It is lovely though.
    Thanks for sharing
    Love Cynthia x

  5. Gorgeous work Fiona, I love that bp :D And you're free to use any image at all for our challenges, no worries about using the same one as one of us. Lol, apart from anything else, menacing mermaid images are in seriously short supply, so I'm surprised we haven't had more overlaps :P
    Thanks for playing along with us at HDH this week! :D

  6. Lovely swirly background. Thank you for sharing with us at Rainbow Lady's this week.
