Moon Marsh Mermaid

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start. I have to make this super quick, I have to get to work early today.

For my card today, I decided to ink up this gorgeous image from Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image was illustrated by the fabulous Elaine Cox and is called Moon Marsh Mermaid. I think she's just gorgeous and I had so much fun coloring her up. I colored the image with copics and then sponged around the top of the image lightly with SU's Pretty in Pink ink. Next I added some Stardust Stickles to her tail and to the lilly pads and then I added some small pearls to her hair. I next created my card base using SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. For some finishing touches, I added a bow (tied with my Bow Easy) and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's all from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon.
