Live like a mermaid...

Hey there!

I finally got my hands on the new MMedel stamp sets from 7 Kids and I couldn't wait to get them inky! All three of the new sets are just fantastic but of course I had to color up one of the mermaids first. The set is called Make Waves and it comes with two lovely mermaids, two sentiments and a bunch of fun extras like the octopus and fish that I used here. Because Maria's characters always seem to have a cute cheeriness about them I wanted to have the scene be nice and bright and upbeat so I added some sunshine through my use of yellow on some of the kelp that I sketched in behind the rocks. That with the bright greens really set off these cuties quite nicely I think. I really had a lot of fun with this one and I know the other sets won't be too far behind on getting onto cards of their own too. ;)

Later gators!
