Stars and back...

Hey there!

As some of you may remember, last year I dubbed June as the Month of Mermaids and posted nothing but cards featuring our lovely finned friends. Well I'm doing it again, and while this time there will be a day here or there that I have to leave the open ocean, that just means I get to extend the mermaid love right on into July.  ;)

So today I am jumping into the water with a lovely mermaid from Sweet Pea Stamps called Glimmer. I missed out on her back in 2013 when she and her sisters were released but I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few just in time for this summer's cards. As I inked up Glimmer I suddenly saw her in a moonlit night scene for some reason. Pulling off the background was definitely a challenge but I enjoy stretching my creative muscles now and then. And I gotta tell ya that I don't think I've used this many blue Copics on a single card before, LOL! Once I had the sea and sky colored in the card still looked incomplete so I grabbed the little school of fish stamp and the willow branches which totally did the trick. Now Glimmer looks like she is resting in a hidden cove with only the stars looking down on her.

Ok then, thanks for stopping by today! :)
