JAN 5 QKD NEW RELEASE MERMAID SKETCH ONE

Hello!! Welcome to our QKD Royal Tuesday Hop!!! If you came here from the WIS blog then you are on the right track!! If not, start here so that you don't miss one fabulous creation with our QKD new releases!!

Today is a sketch challenge!! Here is the sketch we were given to work with:

We are using a new Maigan-Lynn mermaid - Awaiting The Moment!! I was blown away when I received this as my image to work with. I am loving that she's expecting!! And that her dragon friend is also expecting with a beautiful, speckled egg nestled snuggly in her tail as snug as the bundle that our mermaid is carrying!!

I started with some purple textured cardstock and some scalloped edged DP that I've been dying to use!! I also pulled out some PTI aqua mist paper and matching ribbon. I didn't quite know where I was going with this but I tend to pull materials out that I think I *might* use but don't always end up using them all. It's kind of like 'stream of consciousness' writing....I call it 'stream of consciousness' creating!

So I set everything aside and colored my image that is stamped in basic black SU! ink. I colored the image with my Copics and paint pens. I then added a few drops of glaze to the bubbles for some added dimension. I backed the image with black cardstock as well as my second stamp which says "friendship is love with wings". I used stickers from an older SU! scrappin' kit as my flower and I added a blue strip also from the kit to the center to mimic the sketch.
My sentiment is popped up on foam adhesive and lastly I tied the ribbon adding my one last touch (it was a little empty without that there).

I hope you've enjoyed my new creation with one of our newest mermaids!!
