Splash

I was scrolling down my blog the other day and realised there was a distinct lack of me actually making anything that I could show - so I thought I'd rectify that with a bit of an instant digi image hit.


I'm sure most of you will already know about Krista's new Saturated Canary digi images, and the challenge blog has just gone live over the weekend too, so for a quick fix I decided to colour Pearl, A Mermaid in.




Image: Pearl, A Mermaid from Saturated Canary Digis coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers - to get the scaly type effect on her tail, I touched the blender pen to the paper and lifted off, repeating as required.
Core'dinations card, lacy ovals and oval nesties - I wove some Anita's white organza ribbon round the lacy oval, bling clusters from The Papeterie, papers are Tilda that I got in a candy from Elaine, and I doodled the faux stitching. Pearl pen for the accents in her hair.

Thiis is quite stunning & I love the way the patterned paper is echoed by the patterning of her tail (at a distance it is) & your colouring of her hair in conjunction with those pearl pen accents works beautifully. The gem clusters are very pretty with her too & I like your added touch of doodling. The organza weaving is a lovely idea & really adds to the floaty sense of the image.
