Something fishy is going on........

Did I mention a little while that i had a little bit of a thing about mermaids at the moment? I don't know why, but I am really drawn to them. Luckily for me, Polkadoodles brought out a whole range of digital mermaid images earlier this year, and i have to say I just love them.

I think there are about twelve all in all......I have them all, but didn't colour any for a while as I just couldn't decide which one to do first!

Anyway, I settled on this little cutie, which i coloured in with my copics, but the best part about this one is that the background is pre-coloured. I admit I was a little bit dubious about this, as I  thought it would be obvious where the colouring ended and the printing began, but actually I don't think you can really tell.

That makes me really happy as you end up with a really nice topper in half the time, and because you have coloured in the main image, it doesn't feel like you have 'cheated',

So this little lady ended up on a 7 x 7 card and I made the base paper using spectrum aquablends and glycerin, followed by a splattering of gold and pearl white paint. I was really happy with the final result. :-)

So that's my card for today. Hope you like it, and thanks for visiting!
