Paint it up

Happy Tiddly Tuesday everyone!
This week we want to see PAINT on your creation - can be any kind (oil, watercolor, distress ink) or any technique - just paint on it!!! 
I used the gorgeous Mermaid Miranda, kept it pretty simple just adding a few buttons, I lightly painted around the edges and added some pearls and a gorgeous sentiment from Paper Smooches

Ive been playing around with my new Photoshop elements, i haven't a clue what im doing but i was pleased with how this came out. Ive got allot to learn, if anyone knows of any really good and easy to follow tutorials for Photoshop Elements 8 please let me know : ) 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

hope you come and play with us for our Paint it up challenge this week

Fabulous card! Love mermaid Miranda, especially her hair! Try googling tutorials on Photoshop 8, that's usually what I do when I don't know how to use a certain feature.
