The Beautiful Mermaid

Happy Happy Wednesday Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing my Design Team Project with The Classic Design Team Open Challenge using this absolutely fabulous image by Artist Julia Spiri.  I love mermaids and this one is fantastic.  

Here are the links to this beautiful image as well as Julia's Etsy Shop.


Julia Spiri Etsy Shop

I used Copics to color her as well as to create the background.  And then I used  die to create the card (they are all one piece) as welll as the black background.  I was really inspired to use the colors I did because it seems like such a surreal moment in time.  

I used the following Copic colors:

B00, 02, 04
E00, 000
V01, 05,06, 09, 17, 28
RV02, 04, 17
Y01, 04, 08, 13
YG21, 23, 25
YR04, 07, 09

I used Little B Scallops Dies - Large One

I also used a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen to create the dots on the image.  It was actually quite fun to do.  

I hope you feel some inspiration from todays card.  And remember anyone who is on a Design Team is able to enter into this challenge.

I appreciate your stopping by and I your comments bring me a big smile.

With hugs and smiles

Cinderella goes Camo

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…

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…
