Sizzling Hot Summer Days

What could be more appealing than spotting a Mermaid basking in the sun on a Sizzling Hot Summer Day??? 

That's what the challenge is this month over on the Elisabeth Bells World Challenge Blog.  Do you have any Elisabeth Bell designed stamps or digi's?  Can you create something that makes you think of a Sizzling Hot Summer Day?  Then why not join us this month.   

I just couldn't resist using this darling Mermaid from Sweet Pea Stamps for my creation this month.  Isn't she beautiful?  I had a blast coloring her, that's for sure.  This is just one of several beautiful mermaids in Sweet Pea Stamps shop. 

This one is called Elisabeth Bell's Starr. 

I've used Prisma Colored pencils for my coloring.  I've really tried working more with my blending from one color to another...  I think I'm truly enjoying this technique.  =) 

The sentiment was computer generated, and the shell is actually made out of modeling clay, baked, and painted.  The rest of the items were all found in my odds 'n ends and stash.
