Over at Inkspirational - INK#61 they have a word prompt for us - SPLASH. As soon as I saw the word I was reminded of the film Splash about a mermaid - it was such a fun film! On Rick St Dennis's Facebook page there is a challenge to use one of his mermaid images, so I'm submitting this one. I printed off this wonderful mermaid and set about colouring her with Copic markers. I mentioned the book Rainbow Fish - well the colouring for her tail was inspired by that little fish and his beautiful scales. I used a number of colours and then blended them all with a very pale aqua pen. I added some silver scales and a touch of sparkle with my Wink of Stella brushes. I coloured her hair to co-ordinate with her tail. To make the card I covered the base with this lovely paper from Stampin' Up! - creating the sea. I added some little fish and a bold sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat layer from the design paper and on the white panel, I stamped some more fish and an octopus. There is no sentiment, just space for a message.
I took a close up photo of her tail so that you can see the shimmer and sparkle, as it doesn't show up in the photo of the whole card.
I'm a very lucky girl! I got a new computer delivered last week and I've been busy setting it up - you know, transferring photos, documents, etc and adding the programmes that I use. It's almost done and later this week, I have to dismantle this PC and replace it with the new one. It has a much bigger memory - good for all the photos - and a lot more RAM too which will make editing so much quicker.
That's all for today. See you soon.
