I don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad ...

Stamps by Penny Black

The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen and illustrated by Christian Birmingham. Love this story too! Again, very sad though, definitely does not have a Disney ending

I knew right away which stamp I was going to use for this challenge. I found
the quote online and wrote it in my own handwriting
using a white gel pen on black paper.

For this card, I used my acrylic paints for the background by using 3 different
shades of blue and I did the Paint Dragging technique using an
old credit card to drag the paint across the paper.
I then colored the mermaid and the little fishies and turtle
using all Distress Oxide inks.The colors I used were:
Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet,
Carved Pumpkin, Spun Sugar and Peacock Feathers

I love the painty technique you've used for the waves. Combined with the way you've popped up the mermaid and hand-written the quote, this has quite an artsy and eclectic feel that I love. Thanks for joining The Library.
