I'm a little Mermaid...

Greetings Inky Friends!!

This card I found a tutorial from the April/May 2013 Technique Junkies Newsletter called Watercolor Crayons Tutorial.  I began by coloring in blocks of color with watercolor crayons and then using an AquaBrush to blend each color.  I then dropped some water onto the piece and immediately blotted with a tissue picking back up some of the color creating additional texture - which of course the new Pebble Beach stamp covered up! LOL Oh well!

I stamped the background using Black archival ink and the mermaid
from By The Sea in blue. Trimmed her out and added a pearl in her shell
popping up both the mermaid and the banner sentiment with foam dots.
