Bombshell Mermaid Class at China Phoenix 2 Next Saturday

How are things at your end of the keyboard?  Here in New Mexico, we're feeling the heat.  Not only because the temps have been high, but also because the whole state is pretty much on fire.  Combined with the fact that we haven't had any rain in what seems like an eternity, I would not be surprised if we just spontaneously combusted one day and disappeared from the map.  Until then, I've fixated on mermaids.  It must be their connection to water that intrigues me at the moment.  

I was never a big mermaid fan until I discovered the quirky dark creatures that Stampotique came out with recently.  Now I just can't get enough of the fishy femme fatales.  My latest mermaid infatuation is for the sultry sirens available at Bombshell Stamps.  They are gorgeous and take to the Copics, to!  Clearly inspired by tattoo art, they beckon for rich, deep color.  I had a good time making these cards :)

I'm teaching these 2 cards in my next card class at China Phoenix 2 on Saturday, July 9th at 1:00pm.  The class will primarily focus on coloring, as the construction of these cards is really quite basic.  If you are in Albuquerque or the surrounding areas and think you might want to attend, stop by the CP2 Blog and I'll have more details up next week.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July weekend!  And if you're in NM just say "no" to fireworks!  Take care and stay crafty!

    Love this card as it reminds me so much of my late dad's work as a tattoo artist. He drew and coloured all his own designs and this is just so like his style.
    Thanks for sharing.
