ARTWORK!

I did a gradient of green and blue over a base of king conch with Vibrant Vinyls mermaid scale pattern, then topped it with Prism Sentence.

I used Teenage Bedroom on my index and pinkie, a nude over my middle fingers and sponged two coats of Prism Sentence over it. I love the subtle shifts in this look!

I used Vibrany Vinyls wavy scale pattern with Bermuda High over King Conch, then stamped some waves and anchors over my middle finger.
