A little mermaid

You really have to see the Etsy-Inspired shop (EIC120) for this week. It's called Muffa, and it features handmade miniatures that are incrediby small. Some are crocheted (and as a crocheter, I cannot imagine how hard it is to to make anything that tiny), and others are made of oak. I was inspired by this cute mermaid.

I used CPS sketch 199 for the basis of the card. The images are both from Faerie Song Art stamps. The mermaid is colored with colored pencils and OMS, and this was my first attempt at doing an out-of-the-box cut with my nesties. Tan layer was embossed with the Swiss Dot folder and sanded. There are touches of glitter pen on the bubbles around the mermaid and the stars around Dream.
