Hi there ~ I'm back with a card for the current challenge at CASology...LOVE this cue card!
I started by creating a mask with an oval die, then blended 3 Distress Inks, and stenciled the upper portion of the oval shape. I then used one of my mermaid dies for my focal point and added a small white pearl as an accent. And, that was it!
