A Sweet Little Mermaid! – Repost!!

Ewwwe!! I’m not sure what happened with my post this morning but the photo was NOT the way it was supposed to be! I’ll try again!!

I LOVE this The Greeting Farm image – Mermaid Anya – she’s just so cute and so fun to color!  I actually colored her MONTHS ago when Joy was in town for an Our Craft Lounge class with Cami and I.  I saved the image for a special day… then when I saw the shimmery ric-rac I knew it was time to pull her out, as I thought it would make great waves and I knew exactly what sentiment I wanted to use as well!! 


The sentiment “Hope your birthday is a SPLASH” is from OCL’s set – Whale of a Tale.  I stamped it in Broken China Distress Ink – I also dyed the seam binding with the same ink! (I LOVE THAT STUFF)

I colored the mermaid with Copic markers – and I also used a blue Spica pen to create some scales on her fins!!  Then I glammed her up with Kaiser Craft Rhinestones – Aqua Marine and Kaiser Craft Pearls – Snow

Here you can kind of see the scale pattern, right?  Well imagine it all purdy and shimmery!


We’ve had so much rain here this month, I’m sort of starting to feel a bit like a fish myself – wish I could at least have shimmery scales – my scale more like shimmies from the weight of me… it must think I’m a whale!! haha!!

Have a GREAT weekend!!
