Hello everyone! 

I hope that you're all doing well. Designer Noelle with you today to share some inspiration using the super adorable "Mermaid Ellie with Seahorse" image. You can find it in the store HERE and also available as a digital stamp HERE. I personally prefer rubber stamps myself. Anyway, I hope you like what I've created with her!

I colored the image with my copic markers. The bubbles are colored with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. I layered her on top of some mermaid paper from my stash and also added seashell washi tape. I also framed her in some die cuts from my stash,
