My man Merlin

Yeah. I did. I colored him!!!

Isn't this merman dude absolutely HILARIOUS!

What really put me in stitches was using that sentiment!!! heee HEEE!! HELLO! was hard to color his round belly...'cause I was laughin' the entire time! His name is Merlin. He's another NEW Fresh Brewed Designs digi image from the release on Monday.

I colored everything with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I think he turned out pretty darn special! ;) Here's the colors I used to bring out all his "best" features:

Skin - FS2, FS3, FS4, TN3
Hair - CT1, CT4, GB5, GB9
Tail/Fin/whatever - CG1, CG3, CG4, GG1
Sun - CT1, CT3
Clouds - IB1
Tiny heart hanging from cloud - TB1, TB4

Since Merlin hangs out in the water most of the time, shine & shimmer were a must! I painted his entire tail with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz. Next, I colored over it with my trusty ol' Versamark Pen -- then heat embossed with clear  embossing powder. I also added touches of the shimmer sparkle to his hair and eyes.  The sun and waves borders I added colored glitter.

I'm really happy with how the card turned out. The layout is from Sketch Challenge SC499. 
Thanks for stopping by to laugh a little with me!
