Elisabeth Bell's Mermaid

Here's another very quick and easy summer card that I did for a family member who lives down by the coast.  This cutie is just sweet as can be.  She's called Oceanessa Mermaid and she comes from Sweet Pea Stamps.  She's too cute so I colored her up and found the perfect matching shimmery papers to go with her.
You wouldn't think so, but don't teal and orange go well together?  They are opposite on the color wheel, so they are called complementary colors.  Probably not the colors one would immediately think to throw together, but they actually do work.
Project Materials: Cardstock(Bazzill, Hobby Lobby, Crafter's Companion); Stamp(Sweet Pea Stamps); Ink (Memento, Colorbox Chalk); Buttons (Jesse James); Die Cut (Lifestyles--Quickkutz); Color(Copic Markers); Adhesives (pop dots, Glue All, Glue dots);
