AAA Cards - #148 Sketch + optional twist Animals

It's time for a new challenge at AAA Cards and this time there is a very CAS sketch for you to use as well as the optional twist of Animals if that appeals.

I've used one of the cute merfolk from Craftyscrappers new digital stamp sets for my card - does that count as an animal?

I separated the digi stamps in photoshop to achieve the look I wanted and then simply printed it out and coloured using Promarkers. I added a black line to outline the strip as the edges were a bit blurry and not as crisp as I wanted.

I used the colourless blender to get some texture onto the background strip and darker shades on the merboy to give the impression of scales and hair strands. I also glittered up the tail and arms with Wink of Stella.

Stamps: Craftyscrappers, Waving Hello digi
Pens: Copic, E0000, E00, YO2, Y13, Y18, R20, B02, B04, B14, BG32, BG34, colorless blender; Wink of Stella, clear
Embellishments: clear gems

So now it's over to you. How will you use the sketch and will the optional animal twist appear on your CAS card?  There's a chance to win two digital stamp sets from Craftyscrappers with this challenge so definitely worth a go!
