Mermaid Fun

Happy CHOOSDAY everyone,  I hope you are all feeling better than me, I have been suffering with a very painful ear infection for the last week, just waiting for the Antibiotics to kick in!!

For my Digi Choosday and Inky Pinkies DT inspiration I kept it very simple, as I was finding it hard to concentrate with the chronic head pain!

I chose one of the lovely new Mermaids from the Meribelle Mermaid collection.  With the background already coloured I just had to concentrate on the sweet image.

I coloured with Copics in shades of Blue and Grey and added a sentiment cut in Navy Vinyl and a wave die by Creative Expressions.

Finally I added a hand-tied bow in grey organza.

Colours Used:-

Skin - E04  E11  E21  E00 - Blush -  R20
Hair/Tail - B99  B97  B95  B91  GOO
Dolphins - C7  C5  C3  C1
