A Cautionary Tail

Oooh it's almost Halloween! My favourite time of year and a great excuse to break out the darker images. I love fantasy, so naturally mermaids are one of my often-used image types. These are mostly rather beautiful, cute, girly images though so not the best for a Halloween card.  But Mitzi at Aurora Wings is fantastic at darker images and she has some mermaids that are perfect for this genre. I've used 'Secret Kisses' coupled with a quote I found, which fitted the image perfectly. 
Product list:

  • Cream card blank
  • Core'dinations cardstock
  • Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Stormy Sky & Dusty Concord
  • Memento Dew Drop - Tuxedo Black
  • ProMarkers - Aubergine, Plum, Purple, Black, Violet, China Blue, Blue Pearl, Cardinal, Ruby, Lipstick & Warm Grey 1-3
  • Wink of Stella - Clear

It's always difficult showing the sparkle in a straight card photo, so I've taken an angled one in the light to show the Wink of Stella a bit better.  I applied all over her body and tail.


I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Stamps by Aurora Wings (FB) - Make It Creepy
  2. Stamps by Aurora Wings - #58 CAS
  3. CASology - WK270 Odd
  4. The Ribbon Girl - October Card Challenge
  5. Not Just Cards - Anything Goes
  6. World Wide Open Design Team - #26 Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to view my creations.
I am trying to reply to your kind comments as I do read all of them, however I often publish from my phone and then get distracted by my children or life in general!
I am always trying to improve my colouring and cardmaking skills and constructive feedback is always welcomed.
