Sweet Little Mermaid

As soon as I saw Shelby Goolsby's card with that ADORABLE image over on the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge blog this week, I headed straight over to The Paper Shelter and bought myself some new oh-so-cute digi stamps.  I love to color with my copics and these images are perfect for that!  You will be seeing lots of cards made with those in the very near future!  

I am playing along with two challenges with this card.  The sketch is from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #132.  I am also playing along with the Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge #149 which has a "In the Sea" theme this week.    I used this sweet image called Beautiful Mermaid and colored her up with copics.  I used a clear Spica pen to add some shimmer to to eye lids, the highlights in her hair, her top and her bottom. 

Here is the sketch: 

Stamps:  The Paper Shelter's Beautiful Mermaid, sentiment from Verve Thankful Hearts  CS:  PTI aqua mist, lavender moon, and white  DSP:  PTI Distressed Dots  Tools:  copics, clear Spica pen Accessories:  PTI lavender moon button and twine
