Mermaid Tilda

Here I've tried to create a card in the shape of a shell, it is all freehand. The stamps are both from Magnolia's Bon Voyage collection. Inside the card I have used acetate to make Tilda hold up the top of the card when open.

I have coloured these images with Copic markers.
Seahorse, tail and top colours G0000, G00, RV0000, R81, B0000 & BG01
Aswell as some Kindy Glitz for some sparkle.

I am entering this into the following challenges,
Just Magnolia - Acetate
Totally Tilda - A Shaped Card
A Pocket Full of Posies - All that Glitters
Wild Orchid Challenges - One for the Girls
Papertake Weekly - Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue
Fairy Fun Friday - Image framed with a circle


  1. Tracy, this card is fantastic well done I especially like the way the mermaid falls foreward to hold the card open, a great idea and all the more so as you designed it yourself from scratch.
