Little Mermaid

I tried to give this one a bit of a beachy feel using some jute mesh, I think it works quite well. The image is Mermaid Kira from the DigiStamp Boutique and I coloured with copics. I also added sparkle to her tail with a glitter Spica pen but it hasn't come thru' in the piccy (but guess what, and I'm sooo excited, a brand spanking new Sony Digital SLR camera was bought today, but more of that another time). The papers are by Doodlebug and I finished off with a little dolphin charm.
