White Leaf Mermaid - in brown


This image from Sweet Pea Stamps is drawn by Elaine Cox and titled "White Leaf Mermaid". Yes, I know that on my card the leaves are brown. I actually really enjoyed coloring this in a monochromatic manner using brown as my single color. I have done this before with black and greys, but never the brown. I really like the look. The seahorses on the side are just a fun little touch and made with a punch.

Challenges:
Magical Monday Challenge #5- Under the Sea
Tuesday Taggers - Anything Goes


Get Inky!
Alex


Ingredients:
Image- Sweet Pea Stamps
Patten Paper- Basic Grey
