We saw this life sculpture on a recent trip to The Baltic with my Brownies. I have to say I was impressed at her ability to crowd control using only her eyes. The Mermaid also started a new trend in an old game of 'statues' - amazing how those traditional games keep making a comeback. Anyway the costume and make up were amazing and the quote of the night had to be from one of my Brownies who asked a silent mermaid 'can you get eyeshadow like that at Boots?' The silence of the Mermaid said it all.
In homage to the Mermaid I made this card from an A5 themeplate from Elusive Images called 'Mermaid Queen'
She was stamped with Memento Paris Dusk and coloured in with a selection of copic colours. Glamour Dust and distress stickles added the sparkle and some rock candy crackle added a little dimension to the sea floor. She does have two other themeplate friends and I'm hoping to post something from them soon.
