Hello Everyone..

That was a long title wasn't it..but the good news to go with it is.. the winners announcement post is up at the Creative Playground - ImagineThat Digi Stamp for the new release set of the Swimming that is definitely worth the trip over there and check it out..could be you.

Today I'm sharing another of the new release sets, and this one is called Mermaid on a rock
and she is just gorgeous ....

There she is..sitting up on her modelling paste rock sunning herself and all colouired up with Reno Art Markers and Faber Castell pencils...

There is a close up of the rocks with real sand and some very pretty tear drop sequins...

She was so easy to colour and I added and extra fish tail..[just to cover up some little splatters of paste..

There is the full scene on my A4 water colour paper..
The sky and sea done with gelatos..a Marianne lighthouse die, anchor and starfish..and stamped the boat and birds...

And this is the fabulous new set...isn't she just l;ovely..
