Lily and the Lotus and Smudgy Antics NEW Challenge

Welcome to Lily and The Lotus and a new Challenge with Smudgy Antics

Mermaids....It is summer and I cannot love summer with out thinking of the beach and beautiful Mermaids especially in the month of June.My images are from Smeared inks store

The theme is drippings.
I colored the images of the mermaids with my prisma pencils...then I layered the water with water color. There are five different layers there..
The drippings came from the watercolors heated with my heat gun.
The ribbons were attached with Ranger Glossy Accents The little sea shells came from Alpha Stamps. I added little pearl beads..and liquid pearls accents also dripping.
The clippings are from Graphic 45 on the side bar of the mermaids.

I hope you join the challenge with us at
