For Elizabeth
When I looked through my collection of stamps, I thought this was the perfect image for a little girl’s birthday card. Sketch and color combination were quickly decided upon, thanks to the SC306 and CC296 challenges on SCS.

I stamped the fish princess with black Memento ink and colored her with turquoise Copic markers. The white circle in the background was sponged with Tempting Turquoise ink, while the card stock was still inside the circle die. The patterned paper was one of the designs in the Quite a Catch card kit (which is no longer available).

Thanks for stopping by!

    This could not be more perfect for a little girl! The colors are great and that image just pops off the page. Elizabeth will love it.

    How was everything in Belgium? Hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving!
