An Acetate Card - Sea Ya Soon

Phew!! This sure was a tricky card to make and even more trickier to photograph!!
Ive been itching to be let loose on this stamp I got for my birthday and still being in the holiday mood was the perfect time!!lol
I don't think Ive attempted a full acetate card before, but I wanted to make Tilda look like she was in the ocean

Tim's Sizzix Die 'Scrollwork' was perfect for the waves. Mermaid Tilda was painted with Distress inks 'Broken China' and 'Shabby Shutters'

Embellishments from stash.
