The Greeting Farm - I think you’re Fintastic

Hi Guys! 

So, at the moment as I'm sure a lot of you have heard, my home state of New South Wales, and most of Australia is burning. The entire place is on fire. This is the worst fire season Australia has seen in a lot of years. Currently, over 12 million acres have burned, 23 people have died and over 400 homes have been lost! I am in a small part of the state that has gone unaffected at the moment. So, I am helping to raise much needed funds for the Rural Fire Service (volunteers that fight these fires). I am donating all proceeds less postage of all card sales between now and the 20th of January 2020 to the NSW Rural Fire Service.

To purchase my cards, please head over to my etsy. Or, if you'd like to donate directly to the Rural Fire Service, head to this link - DONATE HERE

You can see more information about my donations on my facebook page 

Now, on to my card, and something slightly less terrifying!
This card was made using the stamp Maisea from The Greeting Farm, coloured using copics and fussy cut out. I have then mounted with dimensional adhesive to a patterned paper card base. The papers are from Echo Park, and the local dollar store (the Kraft one)
I have stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock, using Memento Black ink and Kaisercraft Seafoam ink.
Here's a close up of the mermaid, with Copic colours used below.
Skin: E55, E11, E53 and E51
Tail: BG18, Bg13, BG32 and BG11  
Hair: R37, R27 and R24
Crown & Bra: V17, V25 and V22
I am entering this card into the below challenges:
My Favorite Things - Wednesday Sketch Challenge 470
Send a Smile 4 Kids - Love/Valentines Card
Challenge Up Your Life - Anything Goes
Time Out Challenges - Inspiration Pic - for this one I was inspired by the Kraft, Hearts and Red.
Thanks for stopping by!
