The Many allys of Allywhitecat and a Sweet pea card

Good morning and Happy day Before Christmas Eve.

I have a dear friend having a Birthday tomorrow and I wanted to share her Birthday card. I also want to show you a new product for me anyway one of which I plan on getting every color in available.

The product is by Viva called Inca Gold. My Inca Gold color is steel blue. Here is the card and some photos adding the Inca Gold "Steel Blue"

you can see the thin border I painted on using a detail brush and the Steel blue Inca Gold as well as the sea weed and bubbles and creases in her hair.
http://www.artistcellar.com/ is where I purchased mine.

The inside of the card was made using different products from different companies
I used a large sentiment die cut and water colored with I used turquoise green watercolor from Caran d' Ache. I layered in color three times letting it dry each time. This is also the color I used on the fron around the mermaid.
again I lined the border with Inca gold Steel Blue, using a liner brush.
I used gesso I Purchased from http://timholtz.com/tim-holtz-products/
It is Diane Wakley Media white gesso. It is my favorite there is not one I have tried yet I like more.
The stencil is from Dylusions 9x 12 bubbles large

The sentiments came from my store at Fun Stampers Journeyhttp://www.funstampersjourney.com/
My number is 263.
I added some ribbon and embellishments.
This beautiful image is from http://www.sweetpeastamps.com/
It is by Ching Chow Kuik called "Deep Sea Siren"
