Don't stop believin'...

Hey there!

I'm back again with another fun Hello Bluebird card to share. Even though there aren't any mermaids in the HB line up yet... I keep wishing and hoping... I still wanted to make a card for MerMay. So I pulled a couple of my beachy sets, Seaside Girls and Beach Babes, to start building an ocean inspired scene. Then I grabbed one of the little jumping fish from the Fishin' Hole set and stamped just the bottom half of the stamp so all you can see is the tail diving into the water. From there I just colored it in pretty mermaid inspired colors and even added a bit of long hair flowing behind her to complete my simple transformation from mundane fish to magical mermaid swimming off in the distance. The sentiment is from the Unicorn Tales set and applies just as well to my mermaid dreams as it does to any unicorn out there. ;)

Keep swimming my friends!
