Consider Yourself Hugged!

Friday is here and so is this super sweet image, Mermaid Hug from A Day for Daisies!

The background was a happy accident!  I had been truly inspired by my friend, Tammy Hershberger!  She has been making some uber-cool backgrounds and posting them on Instagram.  I thought the technique would be perfect for this sweet mermaid.  I made a couple... they turned out nice.   There was a little but of ink/water left on my acetate sheet, I smooshed it on a piece of white cardstock to keep it from making a mess in my studio (please note the name of the blog -- I am NOT a tidy person).  I LOVED what happened!

Happy Accident!

The mermaid was colored with Copic Markers.  The hearts and tail were coated with Liquidtex Gloss Medium.

There are more wonderful projects on the blogs of my design teammates:
