HIMCR #70 Challenge

Welcome to this weeks challenge over at HIMCR!!! 3 favorite Colors
(Blue, Red, White OR Blue Red and Pink are my favorite 3 colors but as you will see I used more as summer calls for yellow!)

I had such a hard time with this challenge, hence the word "Challenge"!  Each DT member was given a digital  from the Scrapbook Stamp Society   I got "Mermaid Queen"by Sherri Baldy

My biggest challenge is Summer and Fantasy  and I thought about what I would do with her for 2 hours... nope, nothing, my brain was blank, hahaha...I thought enough stalling so pitter patter I got at her..... (dove in blind)

As I am secretly working on my coloring skills  I decided to print the image out on pattern paper and give Mermaid Queen  a poka -dot- bikini , hehe!! I also did her crown and tail with a different pattern paper..  I did the eyes, skin and hair with Spectrum Noir!!  Yayyyy!!!  So ok I can't brag to much because there is actually suppose to be water around her but I messed it up so bad there was no fixing it.

I certainly don't know who I would ever give this card too, hahaha.. it has two meanings... is she hot or is she hot? lol

 
 



Hop on over and link up your project!!!!

I love your mermaid. I did a couple of them as ATCs. If you want a pic of them lmk. I'll send one to ya. :) One of them I painted & it took me forever. There were teeny, tiny spaces. I won't do that again. I had 15 of them to do at one time. UGH Can't wait to talk to you again. Happy that you used your markers!

My sweet friend, you did a marvelous job, particularly with a theme that is challenging for you! (Although it doesn't show.) The mermaid looks fabulous and it was a great idea to print her out on some paper. You can't go wrong with a polka dot bikini! The flowers are beautiful and the embossed sandy background works so well. Wonderful work, Naomi! You overcame this challenge with a triumph! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
