Mermaid flower card

I just love this La la land crafts stamp of  mermaid Marci. It is always so much fun to colour in and create with her. I did this card for a friend who was leaving and she loves wearing flowers in her hair. The base card is from a pink pack by Kaszazz. I embossed the white card on the cuttlebug to create the frame. The mermaid is cut out and stuck down. (I think) The writing is just mine. The flower is created using retro daisy punches, spritz them with water (not too much) and then using tweezers, curl them into the centre of each petal. This gives 'sausage' type rolls of each petal. When you've done 3 large and 2 medium , then you're ready to build the flower. Finish it off with a diamante or some enamel accents.
The image was coloured in with Tria markers.
Hope you enjoyed and are feeling inspired to create !
Take care
