Dragonfly Fantasy Mermaid

Hi Everyone,

For my card today, I colored up chin-chou kuik's Dragonfly Fantasy. She is available as a single stamp or as part of Plate #21. I sort of consider her my 'good coloring' luck charm :-). It seems regardless of my lack of coloring mojo, she always turns out ok.

I coloring this beauty with my Copics including the background. Then I added small rhinestones through out this image. For her bracelet I added pearl rhinestones although I wish I would have had smaller pearls. Instead I'll just pretend that she is wearing one of those big bead bracelets.

The flowers are a mix of Prima as well as book page die cut flowers misted with Perfect Pearl Mists.

The papers are from my scrap basket and I also added small rhinestones randomly along the right edge of the blue layer.

Sometimes it's hard for me to start coloring but Sweet Pea Stamps stamps weave their own enchantment over me by the time I'm finished coloring the image.

Thanks for stopping and don't forget to check out Sweet Pea Stamps for some awesome sales!
