Seas the Moment

Wanting to branch away a bit from my usual "too cute" images, I perused deviantART and found this fabulous mermaid by Sureya entitled Beneath the Waves.  Isn't she a beauty?!?  Since her hair is pre-colored black, she was the perfect image to layer over a digi paper prior to printing.  The digi background is a freebie from years ago that I altered by slightly blurring it and taking the color from navy hues to more of an aqua.  It doesn't show very well in the photo, but I gave her skin a light aqua cast.  The mermaid's arm cuff, and the scales on her fins have Spica glitter layered over the Copic colors.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

Please click on her to see the larger version that better shows her coloring and sparkle.  Have a wonderful day!
