TGF Mermaids


Hope you all enjoyed a nice and safe 4th of July.  It was quite loud and colorful in our area.  With the drought & mandatory water restrictions I'm very surprised the Governor/Mayor has not banned fireworks throughout California except for the ones that are displayed by professionals.  Just sayin'...

Continuing on with my water-color postcards I picked the mermaids from TGF.  This first one I colored the image back in May.  The second one I just completed today.  Both of these were fun to put together.  Keeping both CAS was the key.

I added the Island Scrapbooking laser cut sentiment with the MFT sentiment right below it.  Colored the Aloha with an ombre effect using two different Copic colors. I really like the background on this one, and that pop of pink gives it that fun element.

Here the colors are bolder, but still fun.  I'm so happy I remembered this mermaid, she's still one of my favorites.  The sentiment is also another Island Scrapbooking laser cut word that I colored with Copics.  Two more under my belt and I'm happy with them both.  I worked on more today so will be sharing them over the next few days.  Until then, enjoy your Sunday and thanks for stopping by!!
