Since you all loved the background yesterday and I still had all my supplies out I did the same thing today. I hope I have convinced you all to try the rag technique. If you do give me a shout out so I can see what you did with your copic blending solution and a rag.
Your Next Stamp has a great variety of adorable and pretty .. love. Todays stamp set is called, “Little Darling Mermaid” and the sentiments are spectacular. I wasn’t so happy with the way I colored her hair so I added the smile to hide some of the hair. I just have to point out this sweet set “All Aboard Spring Carts” from Your Next Stamp … OMG how cute!
I started out coloring the water with some copic markers and then used the rag technique. Once it was dry I added some color pencil and white gel pen accents. The mound of sand was colored the same way. A circle die cut was cut with post it paper and placed on top of the mermaid to create an easy and quick moon. Then I used my distress ink and added some splashes of water with a brush. Once dry I added white dots to the splash marks.
Mini cards are so fun to give and receive … I hope to create many more of these. This frame and die cut set from Newtons Nook called, “Garden Window” is so fun to color and fantastic to make some quick mini cards with. (I have this set to giveaway today)
I have to point out this adorable little racoon in an airplane from Newtons Nook… like how adorable!!
