KK Marina the Mermaid

Hi Friends, I've been wanting to color the adorable Kraftin Kimmie Stamp "Marina" for a while and since Summer is finally here I'm sure it will fit some challenges. I also had a goal with this card of finally breaking out my Copic Air Brush System, a Christmas gift!!! Took me long enough, huh? I was a little intimidated by it but it worked great after just a few minutes of trying. I sprayed 2 colors on the circle die cut to match the patterned paper.
This card was fun to make. Kraftin Kimmie stamps are some of the best for Copic coloring. I did Google the stamp to see how other people colored it and to use as a guide. The sentiment stamps are Kraftin Kimmie too. The wavy paper is perfect, Echo Park I think. This is actually Mojo Monday Sketch 350 but I changed the rectangles for circles (vellum) and I tied the bow on the opposite side. (And I made it a square instead if rectangle).
The small shells/etc. are some findings from Michaels. Cloud Nine makes the rain drops I used as bubbles.
