Another Sweet Pea Stamp - Thousand Years Waiting

I'm struggling to resist playing with these gorgeous Sweet Pea stamps, the only trouble is I'm supposed to be making men's cards!! I really like this card, despite the mistake I've made - there's been a substantial rescue job with the image which I hope isn't glaringly obvious!


The image has been coloured with Promarkers and the background created with Distress Inks. The mermaid has been highlighted with Stickles. The flowers have been coloured with Promarkers and given a spritz of Glimmer Mist.

Tools
Tim Holtz Blender
Nellie Snellen Embossing Flower Punches
X-Cut Border Punch

Materials
Cardbase - Craftwork Cards
Black card - from stash
DP's - Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen
Hatpins - made from items in stash
Glimmer Mist - Diamond
