Mermaid Ellie with Manatee

Happy Wednesday everyone, I do hope you are all feeling well!! It's Lydia here today and I thought I would share a card with you using one of my favorite mermaid images with you.. Mermaid Ellie With Manatee ...

And a lil' close up ...

I so do love this image- the way her hair flows and that cute little manatee are just so easy to love. 

After I coloured this little beauty up, I added embossing glitter to her tail - it just gives a great effect, just like I imagine a real mermaids tail to be! ;)

I hope I have inspired you this Wednesday morning and remember this image as well as many other little cuties are available in the store ... in digi and also in rubber !!! YAY....
