You're fintastic!

Howdy folks!

What do you say to another mermaid splashin' around today? This time I decided to color up Cordelia from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps and I also managed to get my second tail coloring video done too. :)

I'm not sure why I went with the blue and purple color scheme because it is not one that I do much at all. I guess I was just shaking things up a little by stepping outside of my comfort zone. And I do think that I managed to create a bit of mystery for this diva of the deep with the color scheme and cool paper that I paired with her. In real life there is a lot of sparkle and shine added to her shells and tail but I couldn't pick them up in my photo... so just imagine her all blinged out. ;)

And if you are interested in taking another peek at how I color these cuties up just check out the video below...

Oh! And exciting news! New Sweet November sneak peeks are almost here! Check back tomorrow to meet our fabulous Guest Gal for the August release and then all the new cuteness will start to be revealed on Thursday... woot, woot!

See ya then! :)
