The Lil' Mermaid

Wow! I am finally back and doing a challenge again! When I saw this Midnight Madness Sketch, I knew exactly what stamp I wanted to use. This mermaid image is a new, hot off the press, stamp from Stamp Shoppe Creations. She is colored with Copic Markers and accented with the Spica pens to add a little "glitz". I then used two Sizzix swirls and glued them together to make a splash. Then adding a few of the Rain dots from Cloud 9 for more drops of water. Thanks for looking!
