Something's fishy, this card looks much better in real life LOL! For Isabelle's tail I used about 10 different Copics in various shades of pale greens top blues and even some purples, just dabbing here and there to fill out the scales and sin and it really gives it an iridescent look. Then I went over all the lines with my green Copic atyou Spica for shimmer. I used both the Spots and Dots and D-vine Swirls folder to look like bubbles and waves and accented some of the bubbles with the self-adhesive rhinestones, I love that these come in several different sizes on one sheet, doesn't that look like real bubbles rising to the surface?
I went through my stash of stamps and turned up no fish sentiments, and then realized happily, I had something very appropriate for this pear shaped lady after all: "hippy birthday!" LOL!! I framed it up on a round tag to go with the bubble theme, the scalloped long Nestie frame goes nicely with the fish scales...The tail I added separately and curved out and under with my fingers, really looks like it's undulating, this is definitely my fave outfit from this new set, I heart mermaids!
