You are mermazing...


It's June first and my personal month of mermaids has officially begun. Now I know I added May into the mix to compensate for DT post interruptions but today is still a mermazing day! And I'm kicking it all off with a new to me company called Stamp Anniething. I've had a couple of their cute characters on my wish list for quite some time but it wasn't until the mermaid release back in April that I finally placed my first order. This darling mer with the long flowing locks is called Waving Hello and I inked her up using desert sand for some more no line coloring. I chose this technique for her because I really wanted to be able to color in her eyes that would otherwise be all black with regular inking. With her pretty green eyes and tail I decided to contrast that with some cotton candy pink hair. I love how it makes her stand out on the card, which was created using a wave stencil from Simon Says, Distress Inks and some accessory stamps from the MFT Mermazing set. I don't know why, but for some reason I think she is hanging out in some swampy coastal waters. LOL!

Alrighty, thanks for swimming by today and I shall see y'all Monday!
