You're mermazing...

TGIF my friends! 

I was cruising through my digital stamp collection on my computer the other day when I came across this beautiful mermaid from A Day For Daisies. Sadly the shop has closed for good and as far as I know there isn't a way to get Tammy's lovely art work anymore. Despite that, I still wanted to color up this fab digi called Chubby Mermaid 2. It was great fun bringing this full figured mermaid to life, sticking with cool, icy hues in the hope that in the end she would kind of look like a pearl resting at the bottom of the sea. As I say in my Live videos all the time, the key is making sure you leave enough of the white card stock base showing with just the right amount of contrast to make those light areas look nice and bright.   :) 

Alrighty, well I will be back tomorrow with some new mermaids from Sweet November so I hope to see ya then!
