An ocean full of thanks...

Hi there!

So with my affinity for mermaids it should come as no surprise that when the Whimsy Stamps release came out at the beginning of the month I snatched them right up. This beautiful girl is Naia the Mermaid and I absolutely adore her, I mean just look at that hair! I think it was the Rapunzel like nature of her hair that got me to go with a blonde color combo on her and from there I kept the rest of her look soft and pretty. To contrast that I decided to add pops of bright colors to the card by coloring in some whimsical trailing seaweed and other water flora. I like to imagine Naia tending to her under the sea garden so thankful for the beauty and bounty all her hard work has produced. And since a new "anything goes" challenge just started up over at Whimsy, I am going to add her into the running.  :)

Alrighty, I'm off to enjoy a day of coloring. See ya in 24!
