Hugs & Fishes

Okay so I am so not ready for fall yet...or winter! So I'm making some summer cards in a hope of holding on! lol
Here is one of my favorite high hopes stamps-the mermaid. I love her, she's so pretty with her long hair. 
I colored her in with my CTMH markers! Can you believe that? I was looking around on you tube for video copic marker tutorial and came across a tutorial on how to use markers as watercolor markers. It's not as easy to blend as watercolor pencils but markers do blend quite easily, you have to use watercolor paper though. 
Paper is: My Mind's Eye
Flowers are unknown
sparkles are CTMH
Markers: CTMH-ocean/breeze/tulip/blush/orange/goldrush/autumn terracotta/sweet leaf & citrus leaf
I colored in her hair with my  watercolor pencils. 
I also used some doodlebug sugar coating in green/blue and orange-so summer and so fun!
Thanks for looking!
