Under The Sea



Hello Everyone....Very chilly this morning,just had a wander outside with my coffee and the dog..it is 5.30am Wednesday morning for me, and not looking forward to work today.

Had a huge day yesterday, and still getting over it..lol..the muscles and joints are not happy...but life goes on and I have a card to share that I am so happy with..



There she is 'Mermaid' from Saturated Canary...

I have kept her so simple, no sentiment as yet...



Skin and hair coloured with pencils, her tail and sea shell bra with copics..
RV42 -Y38 -C2 -B12 -Y17 -B00

The water I did later with make up sponge and SU bashful blue..then added liquid pearls.



And a side view...

The paper from Doodlebug 'Chenille' from the Blue Jean Boutique assortment pack.

I used a Marianne creatables frame die and split in two to frame my Mermaid.

Simple, but I think she is so pretty..kinda looks sad..or a bit worried..

Going to enter this card in a challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox  [The Sea]
and Deep Ocean  [Deep Blue]
There we are, all done, now I have to get out of this chair and stretch, get those limbs limbered up, have another long day today, then the boys, but at least it is an earlier night for me tonight as the boys have cubs, so I offer to drop them off and that way I get home just after six..phew...

Hi Chrissy, I can see why you're happy with it, it's enchanting. The colours are gorgeous, like some amazing tropical fish. And yes, worried - or maybe a sulky pout! Do hope your aches and pains ease up soon... I can sympathise - day after the wedding I could barely move, not something I'm used to!
