Dilly Beans - Pink & Orange

I was super excited to have both an occasion and a challenge to use a newly acquired Dilly Beans image for.  My Aunt's birthday is just around the corner, and we'll be having a little get together with her and my mom who will be up visiting from Florida (yay!) it's her Birthday in August too!  I have been wanting to use this adorable mermaid since I got her (I have a thing for mermaids).  I saw that the challenge over at Dilly Beans Challenge Blog was Pink and Orange, definitely not a color combo I would have thought of for this but I thought I would give it a go!  This is my first foray coloring hair something other than "natural" colors, and I love the way it turned out.  This is a super fun color combo, and was a ton of fun to make. 
Mermaid is colored with Copics, with glitter pen and glossy accents added to her eyes, a few highlights with a white Gelly Roll pen, and some eucalyptus stickles added to her tail.
Sketch came from #212 Sketch Saturday

Papers:  Recollections "Cupcake Cuties" cardstock
Embellies:  Genevieve Gail Felt Stickers Boho Collection "Flowers", Making Memories Trims - Animal Crackers/Jack, Darice Gems "Earth".
That's about all, folks.  Almost the weekend, just a few more days to get through.  Now off to bed with me before I turn into a pumpkin!  (or just a crankypants).  G'Nite!
