It's a "Franken Hippo" Kind of Day

Happy Monday My Dear Sweet Friends

I hope your weekend was fabulous.  Mine was pretty quite due to fighting bronchitis and going to the Emergency Room.  The medications are finally kicking in and I am on the road to recovery.  And so glad I am.

Today I am sharing my DT project using a wonderfully fun image from Sandra Caldwell called "Fraken Hippo."  And I had to much fun working with him.

I used my Copics to color him and then used various other embellishments to create the background.

The Copic colors I used are:

C3, 5, 7
V17, 25, 28
YG21, 23, 25
YR04, 07, 09

You can find this image and so many more at Sandra's Etsy Shop using the link below:

I hope you will also check out her Facebook Group page and the link is also below:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I always appreciate your sweet comments.

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
