SWIMMING MERMAID - IMAGINE THAT DT INSPIRATION..



Hello Everyone...

It is inspiration day for IMAGINE THAT DIGISTAMPS and we have some wonderful guests joining in with the DT so do try to pop over HERE and have a looksee...

For my project I used this gorgeous Mermaid image..MERMAID SWIMMING


She was all coloured up with Reno Art markers and fussy cut out...






I cut to size for a card and forgot to leave a decent border edge so she looks like she is scraping her belly along the bottom of the seabed..



The background was done with a dark blue marker then I added some water here and there...mopped up the excess with paper towel and it left little bubbles...

That gorgeous die cut of vines was from my Aussie mate Annie [ I must find out what it is called as I want it]..and it makls for a lovely undersea hanging plant.

A few seed beads along the bottom with torn kraft paper and it was done...



So there we go...thanks so much for stopping by...

Luv CHRISSYxx

I LOVE this card Chrissy - your coloring of this mermaid is beautiful, and the diecut vines give a nice pop of white against the dark blue. What a neat technique you found to create bubbles too! xKristy

She's charming - and I love the dangling fronds of seaweed (pretty on the card, not so pretty wrapped round my legs when I'm swimming!).

Fantastic coloring, Chrissy, I really love her hair! The blue background makes a great sea. I've never thought of adding droplets to a marker made background, I didn't think you'd get this effect. Looks great!
