Mermaid easel card

I have been using my greeting farms stamps a bit this weekend and this is one of the cards I made using the mermaid stamp. I have used a Marianne design creatable to make the easel and the swirls also came from the same set. The flowers are all made from the Tim Holtz tattered florals die and the big one is not actually stuck on, I just got carried away making them, I have been using tulle with them this time instead of net. Image is coloured with copics and glittered too but it does not show much. All items are available from Sir Stampalot.

Just had to put this photo on here too which I took this weekend of the kids enjoying the pool. Hubby picked this pool up for £30.00 in the middle of winter when snow was on the ground and it was made good use of this weekend by kids and dog. Harley loved riding on the make shift boat and whimpered to get back on when he was put back on the grass.
