Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group May Challenge - Beauties of the Sea

Today is the start of the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group Monthly Challenge.

The topic for the challenge this month is "Beauties of the Sea".

For my card I have used one of the new Ching-Chou Kuik mermaid images called "Intense Red".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, chalked the background and stamped around with Tim Holtz's Squeezed Lemonade distress ink and a scroll stamp.

The backing paper I have used is from a Debbi Moore Inspirations Magazine.

I have finished the card off with some netting, die-cut coral, shells and seagulls and some pearls.
