How To Make an Amazing Card with Brilliant Detail

Charity here with a tutorial for a brilliant card with amazing details. This card is just right for the mermaid in your life that needs a little pick-me up. The hand-drawn detail and touch of glitter go perfectly with the flow of watercolors.
~ Mermaizing ~   
Step 1: Cut a piece of watercolor paper to 4x6".  Draw a mermaid tail. 
My first try, as you can see, was quite wobbly. No worries. With an eraser that all changed.
 Step 2: Paint scales on tail with watercolors. 
A stencil helps separate colors, but dots can be painted for a similar effect.
 Step 3: Use Best Glue Ever to trace the lines between the scales. Dust card with glitter.
Step 4: Add sentiment to the card front.
I hand lettered mine with water colors. If you aren't so sure of your handwriting use stamps or Tiny Type.
Step 5: Punch corners with decorative punch.
Step 6: Attach Card Front to 6.5"x 4.5" card base.
I used thin strips of Best Glue Ever. As you can see, no warping of the cardstock!
This hand made card is as much a work of art as it is a paper craft. Don't stress about getting the colors or lines exact. Just enjoy the process.
