We’re Mermaid for Each Other

Hello everyone!

Seriously…how fun would it be to be a mermaid?  This adorable little mermaid couple is from Tiddly Inks Stamps.  For my guest design project this month, I will be joining the whole team in creating with these little sweeties.

Mermaid Couple

I printed the image at a height of 3.25″ on X-Press It Blending card and colored the little cuties with the following Copic markers.

Mermaid Couple1

I started with a card base is 5.5″ with the layers each being 1/8″ smaller.  The background is colored with watercolor paints on watercolor paper.  Once dry, I used the largest scalloped edge frame and the second smallest single stitch line square frame from My Favorite Things to create the texture for the background.

I created the sentiment in Microsoft Word (Sunny Day Font) and then die cut it with a sentiment strip die from My Favorite Things.  The seaweed dies are from Memory Box.  I cut them out of X-Press It Blending card and colored them with the Copic markers listed above.

This adorable image is free during the this month’s challenge.  You can find the image here.

You can find lots more gorgeous images here.

Until next time!

Skin:  E04/11/21/00/000/0000-R20/30/00
Hair:  E55/53/31/50
Outfit:  BG75/72/70-white gel pen
Flowers:  R85/83/81-YG67/63/61

The dies are from La-Land Crafts, Spellbinders, and Simon Says Stamp.  The paper is from my stash and the flowers are mostly from I Am Roses.

I used the biggest die from Spellbinders to cut out the image, which left no die to create the mat with.  To get the matting perfect…or close to it…I placed the dark blue cardstock on a cutting mat, taped the same die down with the cutting edge face up, and carefully cut around it with a craft knife.  (I use PenBlade and love them).

Dies are from Lawn Fawn and La-La Land Crafts.  The paper is from my stash.  I absolutely love pink and yellow, so of course I had to use them on this beautiful image…and it helped that the paper matched perfectly!
