Inkspirational Mermaid

Hello everyone!  I stumbled upon another blog challenge site called Inkspirational Challenges.  I must say that's exactly what it did, it inspired me to get inky.  The challenge was based on a very interesting sea themed picture that had mermaids and hot air balloons.   The mermaid is what caught my eye.  I had purchased a bunch of stamps from a while back.  I hadn't had a chance to really play in them. But I remembered I had a mermaid.  She is quite interesting, so I thought it only fitting I used her.

This image is by Elaine Cox, called Dreamy Sandcastle.  I colored her with Copics and then added some Wink of Stella to her tail, the shells, and the sand.   She just looked like the subject for a "thinking of you" kind of card.  I found a little sentiment from SSS stamp set called Best Mom Ever.  I stamped it in Moonstruck (retired) and inked the edges of my little label with Lagoon.  That's also the CTMH cardstock colors I used along with White Daisy for the card base.  This card is a little bigger than the standard size. I had found some envelopes that were odd sized and larger than usual so, I cut my card to fit.  This card is roughly 4 1/2 x 6 inches.  

I'll be posting my little mermaid in the Inkspirational Challenge since she fits the theme.

That's it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by!
