Mermaid inspired card

Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone whereever you are,

This week’s challenge at Color Me Creative Classroom is Mermaid Inspired “Colors of the Sea & Sparkle”. Our sponsor is Michelle Perkett – she will be providing the prizes (a $10 gift certificate) and she has also kindly provided images for us to use. Incidentally, she is also have a 50% sale on her images for today only (until midnight PST) – you don’t want to miss this one!

Anyhow, this is my 1st mermaid that I have ever colored, so be kind to me:

I love this color combo and I found this patterned paper from Basic Grey Oxford collection that looks like what a mermaid’s tail would be like. I also add sparkles to her hair and the water and her scales are created using a glaze pen.

Don’t forget when you play along, you are also entered into the monthly drawing for the shopping spree at Oozak. How can you beat two prize opportunities – head on over to be inspired and get to coloring.

  5. Steph, You did a wonderful job with your Harmony. Love your colors. I want to tell you how I made her look glossy, I applied some Diamond Glaze it is by Judi-Kins but I did not put it all over her just put a little here and there, that all I did.
