Swim the Sea

Swim the Sea

Yesterday was my mom's birthday. Friday I shared the set of thank you cards I made her, and today over on the IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko blog I've got a tutorial sharing how I made her birthday card!

I used my Spectrum Noir pencils to color the mermaid and the waves (by Sheena Douglass for Crafter's Companion):

Waves: 55, 70, 75, 64, 69, 75, 117, 01 
Mermaid Tail: 36, 37, 39, 42, 09 (fin: 83, 38, 40) 
Skin: 03, 04, 05, 09, 85, 89 
Hair: 117, 119, 120 
Rocks: 109, 110, 114, 102

I really, really love how this turned out.... and happily, so does my mom! She asked if she could buy a whole bunch from me, but I told her if she was *super* nice Santa might bring her a few, lol!
