#55 Photo Inspiration - Nikki Burnett take two!

Hi there!

This week at TTPHC we have a photo inspiration for you!  I was so loving the images that i made two cards for you!

Here it is but don't be alarmed it isn't as hard as you may think! In fact we found it easy lol

Here she is a beautiful mermaid by Nikki Burnette - Arden ....she was lovely to colour and was easy to match up with the inspiration picture...

I loved the blues and greens i chose to colour her in...and for the first time ever i did an unconventional hair colour! yes it green...and it turned out better than i thought it would...

I had a bit of a play with this card i used texture paste and stencil for the background and when dry i used my gilding waxes in about six different colours and blended then burnished them til i was happy with the looks great on the card and the picture doesn't do it any justice at all!

Just to finish her off i gave her a nice simple sentiment and a little bit of black half pearl bling and then she was done...thanks for dropping in and cant wait to see what you come up with!

I would like to enter the following challenges:


  1. This is beautiful, I love your colour choice xxx

  2. I like your step off into the wild side with her hair Anita! I especially like the stencil paste and the background - stunning! I almost wish there was more of it showing it is so beautiful! And the little touches on her wings and dress - very nice indeed! Thank you for sharing your project & creativity at our house!
