Salty kisses...

Howdy folks!

Today's cutie mermaid comes from a 'new-to-me' digi company called Dilly Beans Stamps. Her name is Kiki Mermaid and she has been on my wish list since I first spotted a card using her on Pinterest late last summer. I immediately fell for her sweet face and that round little body. I can just picture her wiggling her entire body to swim around kind of like a goldfish or polliwog, which totally makes me smile. I blew Kiki up nice and big to really make her the star of the show and I was inspired to try a new way of coloring her face after looking at the artist's creations using her own images. The dramatic swoosh down to her nose was intimidating at first but I really dig the artsy look that it adds to her expression. That's why I truly believe that no matter how far you've come in your coloring journey it is always good to keep pushing that comfort zone we all create for ourselves. I also got a couple of her sisters too so don't be surprised if they swim onto a card or two later this month.  ;)

Ok, time to get ready for work. Have a good one everybody!
