Marissa

Sally-Ann has just released some great new images, including this adorable mermaid named Marissa. You can find Marissa and the other July images here. I've been dying to make a card with this cutie since I saw her. She's my favorite July release. :)


I'm submitting this card to three challenges: A Spoonful of Sugar challenge #58 ("Summer"), Simon Says Stamp (use some combination of lemon, orange, apple green and pink - I used everything except lemon) and DareU2digistamp's embossing challenge (I used my Cuttlebug to dry emboss the bottom pink panel).

I used a combination of Copics and watercolor crayon with Dove blender pen to color in this image. The shells are stamped images (MFT's "By the Seashore"), which I colored and cut out.
