Sea you soon...

Good morning!

I can't believe this is the last week of my month of mermaids for June. When I realized I only had five more mermaid themed cards to make it got really hard narrowing down who those last five would be. As I was going through things on my desk I found the Party Like a Pirate set from MFT and immediately remembered an idea I had for combining it with the Mermazing set. So I took a look at this week's sketch challenge and it all came together to really make the decision for me. I masked the mermaid off at the waist to give her the appearance of emerging from the water and I also turned the stamp so just the tip of her tail was poking out of the water too. Next I grabbed the pretty little pirate princess with her spyglass and added some palm trees behind her from the retired Tiki Party set. I colored in the sandy beach and ocean then masked everything off and stenciled in the sunshine in the background. I really couldn't be happier with how this card turned out. :)

See ya back here tomorrow for more mermazing fun!
