Apparently there is no stopping this flood of mermaids once it has begun, LOL! Today's flippered friend is Under the Sea Mae from Some Odd Girl. I have actually had the papers pulled and Mae colored since last August but again, I never quite found the time to put it all together. I feel so happy finally getting this one finished and off my desk!
I remember that I was trying to color her tail to look shimmery and silver kinda like she hails from the cold waters of the Arctic. Then yesterday when I started to put this all together I realized that Mae needed a friend to complete the scene. I went back to the stamp set and found this cute narwhal... what a perfect Arctic friend. The only problem was that he was facing the wrong direction because I wanted him facing Mae, not away from her. It was an easy fix though, I simply stamped him up, flipped the cardstock over and placed it on my light-box. Because he isn't very intricate I could quickly trace his outline using one of my black Copic multiliner pens onto the back side of the paper. Just like that I had Mr. Narwhal facing his pal Mae and everyone was happy. :)
Alrighty then, have fun today whether you're working or enjoying the day off. I'll catch ya on the flip side!
