Q&L challenge

Hi there, wow what a beautiful day we've had, perfect temperature and a lovely breeze:) if only this would continue for the next 3 months!
I'm in plenty of time this fortnight for the Craft Barns's Q&L challenge where the words are MOUNTAIN and MISTAKE. Lots of choice for lyrics with mountain in them but I've gone for a song by Savage Garden that I hear a lot in the car, come and see:


I created the background in Craft Artist and cut out the mermaid, added some glitter to her tail and popped her up with pinflair. I inked the edges and used a swirly stamp to over stamp for more depth. I stapled the ribbon on for a change:)
If you aren't familiar with the song you can check it out here.

Hope you all have a good weekend with some sunshine!

Great tag Val......you've definitely got the deeply with the mermaid; only truly and madly to go! Very strange weather today - started off very chilly with a strong breeze, turned warmer as the day went on but wind definitely progressing - forecast to have a mother of a storm tomorrow, have to wait and see.

What a beautiful tag. Your mermaid is so pretty and the background is lovely. The over stamping is very clever. I wish I remembered tips like that, but I never do, haha. I also like the idea of stapling the ribbon 'for a change'; quick and easy ;)
Thank you for the lovely comment on my Mistake page, I hope you do get your freebie stamp out and make something beautiful :o)

This is a stunning tag. I'm not sure what "Craft Artist" is but it made for a beautiful background. And your mermaid is gorgeous. You did a great job illustrating such cheerful song lyrics.
