The Little Mermaid

I was playing around with my new text stamp from Waltzing Mouse.  The background looks so much better in real life.  The green text is more visible and seems to tone down the yellow  so that it matches the sun.  The mermaid image was coloured with a mixture of copics and prismacolour pencils.  I don't have a large collection of either especially a year ago so I was playing.  I do love how it created a more realistic blend on her hair and softened the background.  The colouring is not the best since I've improved a lot in that time. It's neat to see how I've gotten better with more practice.

  1. Like the coloring on your Mermaid card. The Mermaid image looks familiar. Is it perhaps a StitchyBear digi image? Thanks for entering Speedy TV Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Salutastions Ch15 Mermaid.
