Little Mermaid

Hello and welcome back to cards by Kay . It is time for a new challenge over at Simply Steampunk Challenges ! This month we are using images designed by the very talented Abigail Larsen which are available now over at the SBS store Here.
  Our challenge for you this month is to create your own background, you can use stencils,stamps,misters,ink sprays anything you like, and you can use one other piece of designer paper but only 1. So the idea is to make your background stand out use a steampunk image and join us for some more fun over at the Simply Steampunk Challenges Blog head over there for more info !
 So my for challenge day piece I have used,

                                      Little Mermaid


So to create my background I have used the following:

 and distress inks in Tea dye,Pine Needles,faded Denim and Bundled Sage
White gloss card
