Under The Sea at Crafts and Me

Morning Peeps,

Yayyy, half way through the week, only another few weeks and it will be Easter lol, I'm already in need of another break from work, how bad is that, lol.

Today's challenge at Crafts and Me has been chosen by the one and only Vix and the theme is "Under the Sea".  I have used Jasmine Beckett Griffiths "Pearl Swirl Mermaid", isn't she a darling.

She's coloured with copics and prisma's and now I'm looking at her wishing I had done her with black hair.  Hindsight is a great thing!

That card is adorable Tracy and I like her hair brown. Thanks for being a Poundshop princess with Daring Cardmakers this week :)

Paula (PEP) said...

I can see why you thought black for the hair afterwards but I do think the brown gives her a much softer & more cohesive look with the remaing colours you have used - much warmer too. I love her eye shadow & the way the ric rac ribbon reminds you of waves. Those spiky white flowers reallt hint at coral & I love the soft background sea-green effect you've reated & the way you've coloured the little bubbles.

PS - could imagine her with black hair & pink where you've used blue!
