Mermaid Love in Ombre

To enter A Day for Daisies' new 2-color challenge, I used my fave colors, green and blue, to color up this adorable mermaid. I fussy cut her and then mounted it on cardstock that I stamped with my favorite water drop stamp by Designs by Ryn in different colors.

I printed this digi as a 4x6 image, used my blues and greens from my box of Prismacolors, added scales with a black pencil and then marker and added white highlights with a gel pen. After that, I used Diamond Stickles for her whole tail, though you can only really see it the end of her tail. Then I put some sequins in some of the water drops and I decided to stop decorating. 

I love the classy, free-flowing drawings at ADFD, and the fact that you get a free digi for the challenge if you don't own any of their stamps. But once you start browsing their store, I'll bet you find something you gotta have. I know I always do!

Happy Thursday!
