Voyage Beneath the Sea Mermaid Valentine Tag ~ Creative Embellishments February Challenge

I was inspired by this month's Creative Embellishments challenge photo to create a colourful Voyage Beneath the Sea Mermaid Valentine Tag. The twist on this month's challenge was to use paint - so I had some fun with Watercolours!

I stamped the mermaid and painted her with Watercolours and added some Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath the Sea paper to her tail. I created the scene using some Prima White Sand Texture Medium, Bronze Glitter and Prima Art Stones (regular and mini). I used Creative Embellishments Seashells and Seaweed 2, which I embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powders. Then I lightly dry-brushed the seashells with white gesso to give them a weathered/under-the-sea look. I added two Creative Embellishments Tropical Fish to the scene as well. I covered the fish with paper from the Graphic 45 6x6 paper pad. Inked/Distressed them with Distress Ink and white gesso and then painted on the eyes. I painted them with some Prima 3D Gloss Gel Medium for some shine and added a dot of Glossy Accents for the fish eyes! 

Here are some different angles/close-ups so you can see all the details and dimension!
