Deeper than the ocean...


It's been a bit of a whirlwind around here this past week. Now that I am back to work at the day job I'm trying to find that balance again between work and my crafty time. Luckily on days that are full of other activities I know I have a small stash of images that I've already started during previous coloring challenges so all I have to do is add a background and get them on a card. This lovely Proper Mermaid from Some Odd Girl was one of those handy dandy images just waiting to fulfill her card making destiny. I colored her up back in May during the SOG 12 Day Coloring Challenge and yesterday I finally got around to giving her a home. First I found this great sentiment in a new Waffle Flower set that I just got and it inspired me to color in a deep, dark trench below her. I really love how the rosy peach colors in her tail stand out against that monochromatic background. For a bit of extra set dressing I grabbed a pack of Doodlebug Sprinkles and gave her some friends to hang out with. All in all it was a quick but satisfying card to create and I love when that happens!

Have a great weekend my friends!
