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.
