CAS(E) this sketch #35 - Penny Black Inc's mermaid

Hello dear Friends! As the temperatures sore in so many places, what do you say we play along with Chrissy Larson's sketch and a little mermaid stamp from Penny Black Inc.
Bonjour chères Scropines! Le mercure grimpe un peu partout... que diriez-vous d'une carte petite sirène de Penny Black basée sur le croquis CTS #35 de Chrissy Larson.
Here is the sketch // Voici le croquis
and my interpretation // et mon interprétation
I colored the mermaid with Faber-Castell's Gelatos and watercolor pencils. The splatters on the kraft paper were done using an old tooth brush dipped in some gesso + H2O. Thank You!
J'ai colorisé l'image avec les Gelatos de Faber-Castell ainsi que des crayons aquarelle. Les taches sur le papier kraft sont faites à l'aide d'une vieille brosse à dents trempées dans un peu de gesso et de l'eau. Merci!

I am just going to dive in and start catching up on your blog! I've been waiting for a free hour so I could get it all in, but that hasn't been happening, so I'll do a little bit at a time : )

My first impression on this card is how impressed I am at your rock. What the heck would I do with a rock that needed to be colored? Certainly not that! That's why you're the master at coloring. Well done!!

The kraft & aqua are delightful together & I love the association of ideas with Gesso water splatters & the mermaid plus sea. Have appropriated an unused toothbrush which was destined for the rubbish........(head too big for mouth!!)
