A Lovely Mermaid





 I just could not wait to color this image from Raul Guerra! Just click on his name and you will go to his etsy shop. I do love all of his work but this is one of my favorites. I am sure you will be seeing more of this lovely image around blog land. I colored her with Copics and tried to keep my card CAS.
Really this is CAS for me. LOL! I used my two favorite embellishments, lace and rhinestones. I love the delicate look of lace and the sparkle of rhinestones.  I hope you like this card and I also hope you will give Raul Guerra's
etsy shop a good look. I know you will love his work as I do! Have a great Friday and a fabulous week-end!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: The Mermaid
'Twas Friday morn when we set sail,
And we had not got far from land,
When the Captain, he spied a lovely mermaid,
With a comb and a glass in her hand.
Oh the ocean waves may roll,
And the stormy winds may blow,
While we poor sailors go skipping aloft
And the land lubbers lay down below, below, below
And the land lubbers lay down below.

Then up spoke the Captain of our gallant ship,
And a jolly old Captain was he;
"I have a wife in Salem town,
But tonight a widow she will be."
Oh the ocean waves may roll,
And the stormy winds may blow,
While we poor sailors go skipping aloft
And the land lubbers lay down below, below, below
And the land lubbers lay down below.

Oh, I agree, I love this image. Something very deep about her expression - I think I'm going to have to buy that one. The coloring you've achieved is magnificent and it's perfect for The House That Stamps Built Sun, Sand and Surf Challenge. Thanks so much - we really appreciate your entry and hope to see you again soon.
