Waving hello...

Hi there!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means... time for my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. For today's mermaid I grabbed one of the newest Kraftin' Kimmie mermaids to hit the store and she's called Sandy Seawater. Now if you take a look at the original image you might be saying that this one looks a bit different... well, that's because I did a tiny bit of altering to her smile. As much as I love this mermaid in general, I wasn't super crazy about her wide open mouth. So after inking Sandy up I wiped away her mouth with a baby wipe and then stamped her on my cardstock. This left the bottom half of her face blank and all I had to do was draw in a simple smile line as a replacement. Those jellyfish were a lot of fun to color too, they had me pulling out the fluorescent Copics which hardly ever happens. Then I added glossy accents to them for good measure and that really brought them to life. 

Alrighty, well the May Challenge just wrapped up but be sure to check out the 7 Kids blog tomorrow when June's Challenge kicks off! With all the new goodies Kelly has been bringing into the store that $20 gift certificate that is up for grabs could really help to fill a shopping cart! ;)

Good grief, Amy! This card is fabulous. The colors!!! I just love the texture you created in her tail... and the hair! The camera picked up the dimension and iridescence of those jellyfish... can't say enough how much I love this beautiful creation!! ❤️
