A little bit of fantasy

I fancied getting my fingers inky today so decided to make a card for the I love Promarkers challenge Myth & Magic. I wanted to do a watery background so I chose a Michelle Perkett digi stamp to use as my image. I used distress inks, and a water & Blonde Moments Pearl Pigment powder mix (which I spritzed all over the background and over the image after colouring it with Promarkers) finally I sprayed on some Jade spray ink from Art from the Heart - you should see my fingers now!!

Anyway here is the result, I hope you like it :o)

I'm entering my card in these challenges:
I love Promarkers - Myth & magic
Charisma - Inspired by a song

("The Mermaid's Song", is a melancholy Gaelic song of lost love between a mermaid and a mortal youth.)
Cute Card Thursday - Material girl (fabric flowers)
Fab n Funky - living in a material world (ditto)
Digi Doodle - Write me a message
