Splish Splash

The third and final day is here!!! If you are just tuning in, this is the last installment for he “Under the Sea” blog hop at Handmade Happiness. Today I am back to mermaids. Although, I couldn’t come up with a name for this one since I can’t see her face. But I am obsessed with this set from Colorado Craft Company. This set is from the Lovely Legs collection, called “Be A Mermaid.

I didn’t have any initial clear thoughts on this one, so I started messing around with some different mediums. Since I have a live demo coming up using Distress Crayons, I decided to play around with those. I used them on the background with a Vicki Boutin stencil. After smooshing the colors around, I laid the stencil down and used a baby wipe to remove color. I used blue embossing powder on the mermaid and once again a myriad of coloring tools including Nuvo Glitter pens, Sakura Jelly Rolls, White & Clear Wink of Stella and a Copic for her tummy. Originally, I had planned on a vertical card but there was a mistake I needed to cover. I struggled a bit with the composition but it turned out well in the end. I just would have preferred the waves to be going horizontal.

I hope you enjoyed the last few days of “Under the Sea!’ Thanks for joining me. Don’t forge to make stuff and be happy!
