Magical Mermaid

At "Oldie But A Goodie" this week the theme is chosen by the lovely Fleur, and she has chosen "Distressing". I have distressed all the edges of my cards and papers with distress inks, it doesn't seem to be showing up too well on the photo though.

I decided on an easel card, and all my flowers are handmade. And I just love this image, at the moment it's the only Sweet Pea I own, I would love some of the fairy ones though, oh well they'll go on my wish list.

Easel cards are hard to photograph sometimes so I have done a few shots of the details too.

I've tried to show you on this close up the Rangers Rock Candy I have used on the mermaids tale. In real life it gives a gorgeous shimmer which makes her tail look wet.

    I am a sucker for Sweet Pea stamps as well, they really are perfect 'gorn up' fairies.
