Big Fish-y Carnival

This week Smeared Ink is the sponsor for The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge!  This weeks challenge was to create a Big Fish-y scene!  Totally love this movie! So that was our inspiration for the project we needed to make.  I love the scene where he is underwater in his car and the mermaid comes to help out.  So I tried to recreate that in my card. If you have not done so you should totally check out the sites above and also Smeared and Smudged there are some pretty awesome things going on at all of them!!!

I used Tim Holtz patterned paper, the Mermaid and words are from the Carnies stamp set from Smeared Ink(which happens to be the prize for this challenge plus the carnie digi), micor beads from Pennywise Arts, and SU cardstock, and Tim Holtz distress ink refills to color the oval frame. I colored my Mermaid with copics # B00, B05, B32, BG23, E21, G02, R27. Everything is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
