Sending mermaid vibes...


Yesterday I pulled out another one of the Some Odd Girl images that I've already pre-colored during previous challenges and of course this one had to be a mermaid in honor of MerMay. This fun digi is called Mermaid Tunes and as you can see she is totally rocking out to those headphones she's found. I've always loved her energy and had colored her in some bright neon colors to match that energy. The only problem with that is when it came time to create a background for her I was honestly a bit intimidated and didn't know quite where to take it. Luckily a recent clean up had placed the Sweet and Salty and Salty Hair stamp sets from Whimsy Stamps on my desk as well as the Mermaid Vibes set from The Ton. The idea to add a bunch of silhouette images of other 'dancing' mermaids and flowing jellyfish off in the distance hit me, so that's what I did. Now it kinda looks like there is a whole party going on, LOL! So even though the old SOG store has closed, Whimsy Stamps still carries new SOG digis as well as some of the older ones, including Mermaid Tunes. So be sure to check out their digis the next time you need a SOG fix.  ;)
