My love language...

Hello, hello! 

You know we couldn't wrap up this personal challenge until I had also shared my altered version of Uptown Zodiac Girl Pisces. Half of the fun was coming up with little tweaks to these Zodiac themed stamps to help stretch their versatility for more everyday type cards.   So yesterday I shared my Pisces card as is, and while I know it would have been super easy just to use her as a mermaid with no altering necessary I wanted to show how simple it is to give this mer her land legs. By wiping the starfish from her hair as well as a bit of her tail just below the fins at her waist before stamping, then using a Copic multiliner pen to draw in her missing hair and a new front to the skirt she becomes a pretty, every day kind of gal. Sure, if you are feeling brave you could even draw in legs but the easier route is to simply cut the scene off just above her knees. So even though I chose to do that to make the transformation easier, it also gave me room to play around with pretty papers and embellishments in my card design as well. I would call that a win/win! ;)

Well thanks so much for sticking with me through this fun challenge. I'm thinking I just may have to tackle all the sweet garden girls next... what do you think?

I love your shading of little red dress. For me red is one of the most difficult to shade. Good job!
