Under The Sea

It's very early in the morning here in the islands, about 330AM at the moment, I was on my laptop trying to get a crazy virus off of it! It took me a while as you can see the time. Now, it is free of everything, thank goodness!! The card I have for you today is made with Mermaid Anya, and she seems to be one of the most favored Anya Stamps next to Geisha Anya. This is my first time using this mermaid Anya and she is fun to color and use for cards. I think I had fun adding stuff to her. =) This sketch comes from In Style Stamps and they are having a contest to find their next Guest Designer. I thought I should try out for it since I love their cute cute stamps so much. I just found out about them through Maria--Hey girl!! =) I hope they like it.
Well, here she is closer. Lately this is my favorite color combination, it's cool and warm at the same time. But, make no mistake I still LOVE pink!! =) I have added some baby blue pearls in her hair, some aqua stickles to her bra, and gold and orange stickles to her body and tail. I gave her a little make up on the eyes and slight foundation to her cheeks.
For the recipe on this card, please see at the end of this post.
Does this look yummy or what? Well, Jacqui is giving away some blog candy and will be giving it away on March 24th. Head on over for your chance to win!!
