Now, isn't she just too CUTE! A few months ago, Gina Smith sent me a mercat in the mail and I just fell in love with the concept. I love to incorporate cats whenever I can and my swap-mate said she liked mermaids so I just combined the two.
The base is cardstock and then I just started arting using gel pens, markers, distressed ink, distressed embossing powder, microbeads and embellishments. If you have never made a paper doll, you really should try it. It's the most fun and I'm finding myself starting to incorporate the dolls into other pieces of art I do. Enjoy!!!
p.s. want to hear something really funny? When I got my doll from the blind swap in the mail, guess what it was...a mer-cat! Now isn't that odd? Guess great minds think alike.
