Mermaid's World

     I had a fun couple of coloring days and the best part was sharing them with my eldest granddaughter.  She colored a couple of images which you'll see on cards later on and then, on this Mermaid from Fabrika Fantasy, I colored the background and she did the mermaid.  It seems our coloring styles are very much alike.  Other than knowing which of us did which part, I don't think I'd be able to tell any difference.  We were both using polychromos pencils.

In putting the card together, I used the sketch

     Rather than using dies to cut the image, this time I did the old tried-and-true tearing on the image and again on the mat.   The wide strip is dp from K & Co. and the narrow strip at the top is ribbon from my stash.  The fish charm is actually a shank button with the shank removed.

     We're nearly half-way through the weekend (depending on when you started counting it as the 'weekend') and mine has been productive and busy.  Hope yours is going well.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
