You're a treasure...


I've got another Whimsy mermaid to share with you today. This little beauty is called Mermaid Darling and she is quite suited to that name if you ask me. I went with the no-line coloring technique on Darling which allowed me to easily switch her eye line from looking down to looking up. I think this gives her a coy and rather teasing demeanor, like she is planning some sort of mischief with a pirate or two from that ship in the distance. Speaking of that ship, it's an old October Afternoon rubber stamp that I've had in my stash for ages just waiting for the right card to sail onto. Though I did use it with the My Favorite Things mirror image stamp so that it was sailing in the right direction. And I'm linking this card up as my first entry into this month's "anything goes" challenge over on the Whimsy blog.
