Wowzer it seems like forever since I have had time to sit down and blog! Talk about some wild weather going on around here this past summer. We've gone from raging forest fires due to severe drought conditions to torrential downpours resulting in massive flooding and destruction. The term gullywasher is taking on literal interpretations. I've had people (who are flatlanders:)) ask me why there is so much massive flooding with what they consider not a lot of rainfall. I just told them our climate is a high desert type of climate where there isn't a lot of rainfall (maybe an inch a month on average) and with all of the mountains it is like being at the water park and standing at the bottom of where a million water slides empty at the same place. Take the water that's in a slide and spread it out on flat ground and there isn't a lot, but put it at the very top of the slide and let it slide down the chutes...whole different scenario. On positive note, I haven't had to run the sprinkler system much in the last 6 weeks thus some more money to buy some stamps!!
Anyhoo, enough of the crazy weather talk or someone is going to think I live in the UK:)
Hot summers really are my favorite season and I don't look forward to it ending, so I'm trying to stretch it out a little more with my cards.
This adorable mermaid is called Goldie and is from the awesomely talented Sylvia Zet and can be found at Whimsy Stamps. The star fish die cuts are also available from Whimsy and the acrylic flowers on top of the star, I found in my stash. The paper is from LOTV.
Of course she's colored up with copics. I realized while I was putting together class manuals that there are a few colors groups that I've willfully ignored over the last year or so. With the exception of the skin, I've used some color groups I don't typically use. The hair was done with G19, 16, 14, 12, 000; the fins done with V17, 15, 12, 000, RV14, 02; bubbles done with RV02, colorless blender and RV000 and the dots in her hair were done with the copic opaque white.
Thanks for stopping by today, and hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.
