Your Invited #2

Hello to all, if your like me you are so glad the weekend is here.  My hubby and I are working at getting the pool and backyard ready for a wonderful summer full of good times.  I took this time to get a head start on an Invite for a get together.  I had this outline of a mermaid for some time so I took to the colored pencils and added a bit of color to her.  She needed some bling so I took some sequins to her tail and boy does she sparkle now.  Don't ya think!!!  I then went crazy with my green shades of memento Luxe inks for some leafage in the background and a toffee color for a few shells.  I attached some seahorse beads and a few shells I shaded in along with a pearl for good luck.

Your Invited #2
Oh my it looks like someone lost their snorkel and diving mask.  I almost forgot the sand on the bottom of the ocean came from San Francisco, CA.  I used some spray adhesive and sprinkled some sand over a translucent sheet.  Looks like this will turn into a treasure hunt.  Hope you enjoyed viewing this one as much as I did creating it.  Have a wonderful weekend.

I'm entering this at:
