On the outside looking in?

This month the Cards Galore Challenge is sponsored by the fabulous, Scrapper's Delights so I have created one piece of work for both DTs!

The winner of the Challenge will get a whole $10 to spend in the Scrapper's Delights Store HERE.
We can also give you a special 20% off discount voucher for the Scrapper's Store, where there are already a number of bargains to be had!

So the Challenge is a BINGO CHALLENGE, all you have to do is pick three squares either horizontally, vertically or diagonally from out Bingo card and include your chosen elements in your project.

I chose Gems/Die Cuts,Inks. I decided to use Narissa Mermaid (isn't she beautiful?) and the Under The Sea Set. Once again I created a liquid pack with acetate and fairy liquid. I designed the background on my Cameo, cut the holes and backed with silver. I sprayed the backing with dylusion inks, and highlighted with a white pen. I smeared liquid pearls on a non stick sheet and cut it to make seaweed. The box frame was made on my Cameo, covered in gesso, acrylic paints, and then inked. All printing was cut on my Cameo and coloured with my Copics.The pearls were created with liquid pearls. There are rocks inside the frame made with card and decorative gravel. You can't really see from the photo but there is a real "3D" look to the piece.
The question is, is the mermaid on the outside looking in and wanting to be back in? Or is the Mermaid inside wanting out? Or is the inside Mermaid a ghost or the alter ego of the outside Mermaid? Questions, questions, questions!
Happy Crafting,
