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!
