Mermaid For Mother

I am back!!!! I have finally moved into my new house and have internet again!!! Yea!!! I hope to get several cards finished and posted in the next few days. I will post photos of my new craft Studio soon. Right now it has boxes and unboxed supplies scattered everywhere; but soon it will be the work room that I have dreamed about.
Mermaid For Mother - This week at Michelle Perkett Studio the challenge this week is Mother's Day (UK.) I love Michelle's mermaids. They are so girly and perfect for any card for a woman. This image is called Tutti Frutti. and I thought it would be fun to color her in sherbet colors.

DP is Dear by DCWV. The tag and the flowers that spell out love were in the paper stack. I self ruffled the ribbon and I tied the bow using my bow easy. The little pearls are Dew Drops.

Tutti Frutti was colored with Copic's and I used several Spica pens for the shells and corals around her hips and hair. I loved coloring Tutti Fruti and you can find this image and more of Michelle's Mermaids Here. anything goes - optional something new - ruffling of ribbon
