Focal Friday's ~ Tiddly Inks NEW STAMP Release ~ Wryn The Mermaid

Hi Friends,

Welcome back to a super special Fairy Stamp Land Focal Friday edition. I have selected a color scheme that is out of my comfort zone and I really like the results. The teals and browns have always been a color grouping that I have loved but adding the yellow into the mix really makes the colors stand out and get noticed. 


I have used the newly released image from Tiddly Inks called "Wryn the Mermaid" I have colored her hair with Copic markers using a striped technique. Below you can see the step by step color progression I prepared for you.

I am entering this card into the Tiddly Inks Design Team Call. Make sure to click on over to their blog to show your love for all the designers who are trying out. They also have a really cute freebie image available!!!

Here is one last look at my card up close and personal. I had so much fun designing this using today's Focal Friday color scheme. I hope it has given you some wonderful weekend inspiration.
