Mer-mazing...

Good morning! 

I hope your weekend went just swimmingly. I made time to practice my no-line coloring on the new Mermaid Dakota digi from Some Odd Girl by printing her in washout mode. Talk about a challenge... a fun challenge, but a challenge none the less. I ended up going with a peaches and cream kind of color scheme for her tail and I wish her gossamer fins showed up better in the photo because they look really glittery and beautiful in person. Because of the disappearing lines in no-line coloring I was able to soften her look a bit by simply ignoring how low her original eyebrows dipped and how high they arched giving her a less severe brow. She looks much more sweet and innocent now which I thought suited her peachy pink coloring better. I am also going to go ahead and enter this card into the June "anything goes" challenge over on the SOG blog.  :)

Talk at'cha later!
