Mojo Mermaid!



Man, if at first you don't succeed, try again, right? I started this card last night. Picked out the image, the papers, and colored. I'm so not lying when I said I can't do out of the box coloring! I had tried to take the lesson from Gabi, who is ten, and color my mermaid differently. Yea, my first attempt at purple hair....SCARY! I would post a photo of it, but really, it was that bad! I'd hide my blog in shame! LOL! Anyhow, so I came back today to try again on the hair. This time, I gotta say, WOW! How cute did she turned out? I covered her tail in smooch. Bonus for redoing it today because the Mojo Monday sketch is a fun one! Sadly, I'm almost out of that paper pack. It's been discontinued by TAC. Such a pretty paper line! Gotta say, these mermaids from Sweet November are way fun to color! I used a sentiment from Amy R's Underwater set.




Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Copics, nesties, Genevieve paper, SU cardstock, gems, smooch, stickles,

We are our worst critic - I'm sure you first attempt was just fine. This one is so cute though...too cute! I'm with you - I love that paper line and was sad to see it go.
