Carpe Diem

This is my third week as a guest designer for Incy Wincy Designs.  This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge.  The sponsor is one of my favorites ‘Delicious Doodles’.  I used her mermaid image called Marina.  I love this image and was so excited to get to play with her!  I colored her using chalk and pencils.  I colored the fish using Stampin’ Write markers.  I used some Stickles for the extra glitter and used Glossy Accents on all of the fish.

here is what the sketch looks like:

I used one of my stick pins inside the shell along with some colorful feathers and the raffia

Thanks for looking!
