Dropping you a line...

Hi gals! 

I'm really on the run this morning so I'm going to have to make this post short and sweet. Pearl, the gorgeous mermaid from Saturated Canary has been waiting ever so patiently for me to print her out and get her on a card. For some reason when I sat down to color I saw her with a goldfish tail so out came the yellows, reds and oranges. And what would a goldfish card be without a few touches of metallic gold added to the design as well? Luckily I had the gold sequins still sitting right in front of me and a thin strip of gold cardstock to pull it all together. I made the 'bubbles' in the background by letting my colorless blender rest on the paper, pushing the blue out. Then I just added drops of glossy accents over the white spots and I had instant bubbles. 

Alrighty then, gotta go. TTYL!

She is so pretty, and as always, your colors are awesome! Just adore how beautifully you colored her hair. And those eyes... good grief... just gorgeous! The pearls in Pearl's hair are a lovely touch. :) She's definitely a favorite. Wow!!
