And he looked through the broken glass in the Porthole and......

'OOOO there was a Mermaid!!' LOL
I had such fun making this card late last night. I just didn't want to stop!! Hee Hee
It sure was a difficult to photograph too, as I couldn't get the lighting right. So this will have to do. I have used Mermaid Tilda(one of my faves at the moment). The papers are Magnolia.
The ship script came in very useful for this and is from the 'Nautical' sheet From Aspects of Design(But is now being sold separately)

I used UTEE over her (3 layers), then cracked it when cool to make it look like broken glass. Around the outside I used Ideaolgy 'Hitch Fasteners' as the bolts on the porthole. Also the netting at the top is from my Garlic!!
