Spika the Evil Mermaid Card


This month for the Simply Betty Stamps Facebook Fan Page Challenge the theme was "Good vs. Evil" and we were given our choice of two mermaids.  I decided to go outside my box and do the evil one.  Once I saw the image I had a vision of what I wanted...now, getting it all to work was a little more challenging.  My end design is not exactly what was in my head, but I am very please with it.  So, here she is, Spika the Evil Mermaid...

Here's the Details:

Image Spika the Evil Mermaid by Simply B Stamps, she is "mixed media"...I colored her body with pencils; her hair, eyes, and lips are colored with markers; and her tail is done with black marker covered with crystal effects (for the slick effect) and Stickles in black (had to have a little glitter).

Sentiment - came with the stamp, I added some Stickles in black.

Papers - black card stock for the base of the tent card, silver card stock - I added the grid marks with my score tool.

Extras - for the background I used a image I found online, inked mulberry paper for rocks, crystal rhinestones, green fibers, black sheer ribbon, Jolee's skull dimensional sticker, and a small skeleton hand (thanks, Elisabete - it was perfect!).

I really enjoyed going out of my box to create something not so glittery and sweet.  Thanks for looking!
