Mermaid porthole card

I was looking for something original to make a dear friend of mine in love with Mermaids. When I came across the Winnie collection from Polkadoodles I thought the Winnie Best Friends digi was absolutely perfect!! I started by coloring the digi with my Spectrum Noir Markers. Then I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to create a water like sparkle background and added some accents to Winnie's tail and flowers.





I added a little Happy Birthday sentiment using this Polkadoodles Sentiment Collection.

For the front of the card I was at a loss. Now I'll admit I have never used printable papers before but I am absolutely in love and addicted now!! I used the Polkadoodles  Distressed Wood paper pack. I cut out a circle to simulate a porthole then shaded it a light tan to stand out against the woodgrain background. I added copper brads then mounted the porthole to my background using foam tape.







I cut out my net using the CC Fishing Net Die and placed it in the corners. I used a die cut anchor I had and added a bit of twine. I then placed more twine in the corner and added a wheel charm.
