I have a friend who loves mermaids and all things ocean-y so I made her birthday card.
I stamped Smushasha on white cardstock and then colored her in with Copics. In my mind mermaids are a bit sparkly so I added some glitter to her hair and tail. It seemed like her body should be kind of slippery-looking too so it got a coat of Diamond Glaze. After some serious fussy cutting I glued her onto the background and popped up her head and fin with foam. (Okay, confession. In the fussy cutting process her head was lopped off. Poor Smushasha, but I do like the lifted-up look anyway).
