Critter Sketch Challenge #7 hosted by Paper Jewels

It's my turn to post another challenge card for the Critter Sketch Challenge! This is the sketch we used for Challenge #7.
This is the last challenge sponsored by Paper Jewels this month and my card is created with one of the stamps Jenny carries in her store, "The Serene Night". This is a Sweet Pea stamp, part of the "Ching-Chou Kiuks" collection. This is actually the first time I've created a card from this collection and I so enjoyed myself! I've always loved fantasy and this just fills that little niche in me plus let's me expand my creativity.
The hardest part was choosing which design paper I wanted to use. I finally decided on two. My image is mounted on a panel from DCWV's "Once Upon a Time" collection. The rest of my design paper is from Basic Grey's "Marrakech" collection. My card stock is from Stamping Up.
Now my coloring is with two different mediums this time. I started with Luminarte H20's on the clothing and mermaid tail. I then used Copics for the hair, flesh and background. I also used a Copic Atyou Spica silver pen randomly on the scales (guess that makes three!).
G0000, G21, BG0000, BG93, B95, R11, R20, C00, C1, C3, C5, E000, E00, E31, E35

Hi Marsha thank you for your comment on my blog just had to come and see what you had posted and WOW WOW stunning work I just love the colours and boy you have coloured that image to perfection. I do tend to spend time studying the colouring techniques used and the designs of cards which is why it takes me so long to get around to doing the commenting I enjoy seeing what others have created and I am never disappointed I love it.
