Mermaid Kisses...


I'm in the midst of another 12 Days of Coloring challenge at Some Odd Girl and this one has an optional mermaid theme. For my entry today I was able to get an entire card made using this beauty from the retired Under the Sea stamp set. I inked her up in Desert Sand for some no-line coloring and proceeded to adorn her in pretty pinks and purples. She turned into a rather dark little jewel of the sea so I wanted to give her a special home deep beneath the waves. The background is my take on a fabulous card by Sandy Allnock that I saw on her Instagram some time last summer, the whole hidden grotto thing really captured my imagination. The sentiment is from the fantastic Mermaid Song set by Honey Bee Stamps, there are SO many great mer sentiments on that set I just know I will be getting lots of use out of it. :)

Well friends, have a wonderful weekend and I shall see ya on Monday!
