Mermaids

I have been doing less coloring lately - mostly because it takes more time and I have had a goal to send a box of cards a month to Operation Write Home. But I did take some time to color earlier this week and I was smiling the whole time. I LOVE Sweet Novembers Mermaids so much, so it was a lot of fun to pull some of them out and play.

 
I used Dylusions Spray inks and a starburst pattern mask to create the background of this first one. The mermaid stamp is Coral Reefweaver and Moki from Sweet November Stamps (sold at All That Scraps) and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Heydey Thoughts. (I just looked at ATS and could only find SN Mermaids as digi images now. I hope it was user error and they are there somewhere. If not, at least they are still available as digi......)
 
 
I used the spray inks again on this background and combined them with a Spellbinders mask/embossing sheet that I have had for a while. Once the ink was dry I lay the mask on and sprayed with water. The stamp for this one is Sweet November's Pearl Tidepool and Seamoor. The sentiment is Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
