Marina Goddess of The Sea.....

Hello everyone! Ok this is NOT a fairy but a mermaid. Marina is the Goddess of the Sea and daughter of Poseidon. I thought this wondrous stamp by Sweet Pea ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection was fitting to be called Marina at least in my mind.

I colored her with my copics and then took the finest gold glitter and glued it to parts of the image. The background is done with chalk as is most of mine.  The starfish, sea shells, sea horse and vines are all cut out on my cricut. The swirls in the corners were made with a paper shapers punch.  I did not quite have the right color gems to match so I colored clear ones with my copics and added those too.  The mesh in the background is the left over part of the material after sequins have been cut out. My friend Randi turned me on to this and it just adds that special touch. Thanks a bunch Randi!

I truly enjoy coloring these stamps and hope you enjoy my little piece of art as much as I do!
