Redkelp and Otter...

Listen to me: the human world is a mess. Life under the sea is better than anything they've got up there! -Sebastian
I have been dying to grab one of the new Sweet November Mermaid images...this week's Cupcake Inspiration made it a Necessity!!! I went with Redkelp because of her cute little otter friend...the Office Manager at work's last name is Otter, so this will be a perfect image for her Birthdays!! I went with the colors of the cupcakes and the mermaid, of course.

This week's Etsy Inspired challenge is a shop with some Amazing vintage items...I picked out some Shell Napkin Holders and even though there aren't many shells in the paper or image I used the detail of the shells to inspire me for coloring the mermaids tail with lots of little dots...

The inside uses more of this gorgeous paper...
