I have to admit I am super excited about my card using Who's that Mermaid. I don't gush about myself often, because let's face it... no one wants to read that! LOL But today, I HAVE to. Isn't this image SO fun? I had a BLAST building the scene, glittering her beautiful mermaid "dress", paper piecing it, coloring it... you know... I had fun and I want to shout it from the rooftops. LOL If you're still reading, thank you for putting up with that. I apologize, but I REALLY had fun... moving on... seriously...
The entire scene was colored with Copic markers. The lower "rock" was colored on a separate image and popped up over this panel. I colored the mermaid's "outfit" on a separate stamped image. I then covered it with a piece of double-sided sticky sheet tape and rubbed Glitter Ritz Highlight glitter all over it. Then, I cut it out and paper-pieced it over the image on this panel. I colored the image below near the tail so I could leave her tail free and "flipping". I went over all the bubbles with Sakura clear Glaze Pen. The sentiment was added with the new File Tab Die-namics die, which is PERFECT for sentiments. LOVE it.
I added a layer of waves cut with the Catch a Wave Die-namics die.
I love how the highlight glitter catches the light and it picks up the hint of color. SO pretty in real life, but the photograph captured some of it as well.
I thought the netted ribbon was appropriate. Instead of tying a bow, I curled it with the end of my paper piercer, and to my surprise, it stayed. YAY for that.
I also made a card with the new Triple Scoop stamp set, Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy, which you can earn for FREE tonight with your order. Click HERE to read all the details.
For the focal panel I used some stamps from the Own Your Story stamp set, and then stamped the sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy stamp set. I opted for the Well Worn Greetings Die-namics die-cuts to house the sentiment and it was a perfect fit.
I used four rows of Simply Scallops Medium die-cuts that were slightly curled. It has a bit of a scale look, don't you think? It rounds out my mermaid card quite nicely. LOL Did I mention I love my mermaid card? *snicker*
I even finished off the inside with another sentiment from the set.
