Little Mermaids -- Movies with International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge we're challenging you to Be Inspired by a Movie. I chose "The Little Mermaid" ... I grew up with the anime movie, which was closer to the original Hans Christian Andersen story than the Disney; hence the use of sea-foam green, ha!

The patterned paper is from Authentique's "Sea-Maiden" collection; I used it as the base card, so that the reverse side is the inside of the card. I was inspired by paper to heat-emboss the seaweed on the front in red. The sentiment is from Echo Park's Alice in Wonderland set, and I embossed it in gold powder. I added 3 real shells. For the mermaid tail, I used clipart as a template and created a cut file in SCAL; I used the negative piece to decorate the inside of the card.

Cardz 4 Galz #88: (Thurs) Dimensional Elements [shaker is popped with foam; real seashells]
Paper Minutes #571: (Tue) Peekaboo [Tail peeking up from the ocean]
Try It On Tuesday: (2nd & 4th Tue, C5) Something Old Something New [Old: kelp stamp; New: shaped confetti in shaker]

Thank you for visiting! Hope you'll join us at International Art & Soul,
