Something seems a bit 'fishy' here...

Hello, hello!

Today's gonna be a quick one as I'm already running a bit behind this morning. Remember a week or so ago when I posted my My Guy Ian card for Gabby's swap over at Split Coast? Well I finally settled on an idea and design for my Miss Anya cards and here she is. I did some serious altering of the sitting Miss Anya from the Love set and turned her into a mermaid. Once I did that how could I not give her some 'Ariel' red hair LOL! ;)
It's hard to tell in the pic but I also heat embossed waves with clear UTEE along the bottom of the card to make this little mermaid feel right at home and I have to say I'm very happy with how this one came together.

Now comes my perennial plea for Marie to make us some real mermaid and fairy Miss Anya sets... wouldn't that be FABULOUS?! Raise your hand if you agree... puppy dog eyes and long, pitiful looks don't hurt either. :)

Alrighty, I've seriously got to get moving. Smooches!Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper- Making Memories (Just Chillin' Girl)
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Miss Anya love set), Heidi Swapp (imagine), Fancy Pants (Endless Summer wave)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and rich cocoa, Colorbox creamy brown chalk ink, Versamark clear ink
Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel
KI Memories and Kaiser Craft gems
Prima flower
Sakura clear glaze pen and stardust pen
Copic markers:
skin- E00, E11, R20
hair- YR12, YR15, YR18, E19
tail and top- BG10, BG11, BG32, BG34, BG49, R02, R22, R24

Oh Amy, I love her. She is just soo pretty, and her tail has such an elegant flow to it. WOW! Ok, I have both my hands up and my eyes look really pathetic. Is it working? lol....I have to tell you that I finally tried the PTI white cs for my stamps and copics. OMG, I love it. This is now my all time fav. I think I'll begin hoarding me some.lol...Have a great day, Lisa

She is fantastic!! You did a fabulous job of altering. The hair is adorable and the colors blend so nicely. I love the way you added the waves, they are just the right touch at the bottom of the card.

Great Job! Hopefully Marie will use your design to make mermaids for all of us to use!
