Dragons Dream TIO #129 Handle With Care!!

Well here we are again with another challenge. This time it's over to the very talented Silvia who has chosen the theme "Handle With Care" along with an animal and a warning.
I've been painting and drawing again just recently, full circle for me as this is where I started out selling my artwork over 30 years ago. I started by creating a watery background with pan pastels then carefully drew my mermaid over the top. I took out some of the colour using an eraser then coloured in my mermaid again using the pan pastels. The stamp I've used is from Lavinia and stamped out in Tumbled Glass Distress ink.I added a little journalling and the tag will have a new home in the journal I'm working in at the moment with a whole load of fish, seahorses and other mermaids. We hope you enjoy our challenge this time, come over to join in and check out what my fab team mates have been up to, the link is on my sidebar, just don't forget the recipe and at least one real stamped image.

I had no idea you had started out as an artist. Seeing this I think you should definitely get back into it. This is a gorgeous image - so delicate and mystical. A fabulous tag altogether.
