Hi everyone! This month I’m guest designing for Polkadoodles and today I created a card as inspiration for the current challenge, which is fantasy/magical. To me, mermaids always have a magical feel to them, so I decided to create a card with Winnie Mermaid Mermazing – Best Friends digital stamp.
First I printed the mermaid together with a sentiment from Winnie Sunshine Delights on Perfect Colouring paper. As I wanted the mermaid to pop, I decided to go for oranges, as that would be a nice contrast against the teal colored pattern paper. The Copic colors used are:
- Hair: YR20, YR21, YR15, YR27, E29
- Skin: E04, E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
- Tail: Y11, Y18, YR04, YR18, C7
- Dolphin: BV00, BV02, N0, N1, N3
The teal colored pattern paper is from the Let’s Hang Out pack, which I printed on Clairefontaine DCP paper. After printing, I trimmed it down to US A2 sized card (5.5″ by 4 1/4″). The panel with the mermaid I die cut with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 from MFT to get nice stitching detail. With craft foam I popped it up from the teal background. Finally, I finished off the card by adding embellishments from Lucy’s Little Things.
I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping, and see you next time!
