Mermaid colour challenge

Hello everyone,

I decided to give myself a challenge a colour one. Your welcome to try this combo yourself.
The combo is -

Black, Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry.

This is the card I create with the colours. I used Current Ebbtide from Sweet November Stamps and coloured her in with copics to match the colour combo. As Copics didn't have a Rich Razzleberry colour for her hair I used R59 and R29 to create the shades then went over it with V09. I added Glitter glue to her crown and around the borders. The sentiment and Designer Paper from Stampin' UP!.

I planned this card with several challenges in mind : the midnight maddness sketch #68, Speedy The Cat's Friend's challenge - Frienship, Wild Orchid - make it sparkle and Stampin' For the Weekend - Anything goes.

Thank you for Looking
