Mermaid

When I first heard that Tuesday Alchemy's challenge would be "Mermaids", I must admit that I wasn't looking forward to it.  I don't think I've ever used mermaids in any of my crafts. Checking mental computer . . . still checking . . . Nope, I haven't created anything with mermaids to date. No mermaid papers, embellishments or even ideas. Yikes! What to do, what to do?

Luckily, I remembered how resourceful I can be, or rather, that Google is my friend. I found a vintage mermaid image, printed it & used it as the centerpiece of this playful card.



I also did a little cheating. Well, it's not really cheating. I like to say it's making things easier & multitasking. I used the theme from TA & the sketch from CP. This one card completed two challenges for me - See below for the links & details, so you can join in the fun & share your own creation:
