On to my cards.....I went very clean and simple today, I wanted to showcase the awesome images, these are so fun to colour!



First I have Mermaid Sophie and Scuba Riley. I've had a few questions about what colours I use for Riley, I promise to do a post about that soon when I have time! The image is coloured with Copics of course, and you might be able to catch a little shimmer on the mermaid tail from a Spica pen.


This image is so iconic! Riley and Sophie have made it from the ocean to the desert and it looks like they're having so much fun!

It's time to send you on your way now - leave a comment to go into the draw for a free Riley stamp, then go visit my talented friend Frances - I know she'll have something gorgeous for you!

 Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the design of the Mermaid Sophie and Riley the diver card. The colors were beautiful and the idea for the mermaid tail was amazing.
