I made this lady for Ffrogg526 in the Ongoing Hoopla Swap Rd 3.  I decided to do a combo of her themes as she listed some really great ones that got my imagination rolling.  She has received and posted so it's safe, she knows.  The Steampunk Mermaid...


There are some sublte bubbles around her, hope you can see them.





I didn't use too many stitches, mostly backstitch, french knots and for her hair I think I used the split stitch.  I used from 1 to 3 strings on her.  Hope you dig her  Wink
