Hi everyone!  It is Delightful Thursday today at Digital Delights.  Today I am featuring this cute image simply called Mermaid.  Isn't she just the cutest?  I cut her out with my Cameo and colored her up with Copic Sketch markers.  I also used a sentiment from the Digital Delights Keeping in Touch Sentiment set.  You can get both of these stamps from the Digital Delights Store.

My cardstock is from Bazzill.  I made my own designer paper.  I used Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea ink and a brayer to make the background.  Then I used a Seaweed stamp from Great Impressions.  This I hope gives it an underwater effect.  I used a green copic marker and white gel pen to add a little color to the seaweed. Then I added my image and sentiment and finished with a few pearls from my stash. I also used Glossy Accents, Crystal Stickles, and Liquid Pearls.

Copic Sketch Markers:  BG32, BG34, E00, E01, E02, E04, E11, E50, E51, E53, E93, R02, R20, YG21, YG23
