MERMAID {FBD August New Release}

New Digi Releases

Hi my lovely followers and visitors, some beautiful NEW mermaid images are being released today at Fresh Brewed Designs. I got to play with some of these beauties.  The images I have used are called MEMORY, MYRTLE and MERLIN.  Also visit Fresh Brewed Designs' Facebook Page to join in all the fun and surprises, here.

    12. I love your card here and such an awesome image too. Love the thick stomacks on the mermaids, so they´re more like normal people than some model look, it also makes them more fun to play with I think. And as usual your coloring is sooo perfect.
