Bewitching Mermaid

I used a digital stamp from Aurora Wings called A Dark Current (Evil Mermaid with skulls) for this card. The image is colored with pencils and blended. The card is embellished with a die cut tag, a scrap of purple fabric, a metal anchor and glitter.

I am always so tickled, as you know, when I see your art Wendylynn - or shall I say Wendy! This is gorgeous. Your colors are wonderful and so gentle and complimentary. Honey, I'm not sure if you entered monochrome??? Yes? Well - in my book all these are the same (haha cuz they are all my fav) but I think monochrome is truly all the same (shades of blue) etc. but let's just say you are one great artiste and magic is on your side and THIS is monochrome too!!!! (I do see variances of pinks to purples/blues and I totally get it! lol) So with that I say best of luck and I really look forward to seeing you next week - I hope you get a chance to play with us again! Best Wendy, Samara DT LOC

Hi Samara...
Thanks for always complimenting my artwork. My bewitching mermaid fits the LOC category...I'm so glad you guys have a theme but also accept the LOC designs. Not many challenges want to see the unique and unusual and this stamp from Aurora Wings is definitely a little left of center.

What a fabulously unique image Wendy Lynn. I love how you have coloured her. She definitely falls into the 'bewitching' category as your sentiment states. Thanks for joining us this fortnight over at Fresh Brewed Designs. Good luck in the draw.
