The theme is Fairy tales gone bad, and I used The little mermaid as my inspiration, along with my fantastic image from Aurora Wings and can be found to purchase here - Evil Goth Mermaid with skulls. I only used the mermaid and skulls for this image and removed the beach she was sat on, instead putting her in front of a panel from Make it Crafty.
I matted a layer of blue pearl print pearlescent paper on top of the 8x8 card blank, and cut two slightly smaller rectangles from a sheet of 12x12 bexley black paper , i rounded the outside corners on each piece. I then cut another rectangle of irridescent textured paper even smaller and matted it on black cardstock. this went across the middle at a slight angle. a final strip was cut to go horizontally across the middle,with a lace overlay, with the image panel on top (also matted on black cardstock) The image was popped up on 3D foam pads to give some dimension and depth to the card, and I also added an anchor cut on my Scan 'N' Cut machine. this was coloured with a grey promarker then partially heat embossed in random areas with copper embossing powder so it gave the appearance of rust/corrosion. i made the rope out of a plaited length of jute twine to hag it from and adhered it to the card with silicone glue at the knot.
I added 3 large grey half pearls to the bottom right hand corner, and edged the middle strip with tiny black diamante gems. i handwrote the sentiment on black card and roughly cut it out (don't mock my handwriting, please!)
both the image panel and the main image were coloured using promarkers and im afraid i used too many to list as I was colouring..if you really are interested drop me a message and I will try and work it out for you!
I hope you like my dark 'Ariel' from the little mermaid card!
until next time!
