Paper Craftin with Erica

WOYWW: Aloha!

With this beautiful weather coming on in, I thought it would be nice to post a card in hopes that it warms up even more!!  I’m not sure how much I like this creation though, I must admit, it looks kind of neat!

TGF MermaidIt’s not my best coloring… I actually had quite a difficult time… not so sure why.  I do like how the Mermaid’s tail turned out.  After coloring it, I added clear Crackle to it so that it would look as if there were scales.  I also used Opaque White by Copic for the water bubbles, which I feel adds great dimension.

Challenges I’m entering include: Sweet Stampin’ (fairies or fantasy); Simon Says Stamp (anything goes); Papertake Weekly Challenge (anything goes); and the Outlawz Twisted Thursday (anything goes).  I am also linking up to What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday at the Stamping Ground.

I’m slowly gettin’ back into the groove of things (as far as craftin’ goes).  My work area is pretty clean and neat; however, my “cutting desk” is rather disorganized because of my recent purchase of Project Life supplies.  I’m working a neat 6×8 Project Life album, which I will begin to post in a few weeks.  Hope you’re all doing well in blog land.  XOXOXOXOXO

    I do like your mermaid! To me your coloring is really good! As to the rest of the card, the turtle, coconuts, trees and all are cool. And I think I have that same background paper! Happy WOYWW!
