Happy February! I can hardly believe it is February already.....but, lets go with it.....like we have a choice! I have been creating with new products from our Seasonal Expressions from the moment they arrived. I think this is one of my all time favourite issues! Here is the first card I put together with Make Waves.Mermaids are every where and I am happy to join in. I stamped this sweet patterned paper from Make Waves with the sea star image from the coordinating scrapbooking stamp set.
*Technique Tip: I used the wrong side of the sea star stamp to make this solid image with Glacier ink. Then I turned it to the right side and stamped the proper image, over top, with Glacier ink.
**Tech Tip #2: I stamped the mermaid image on the lighter side of Bashful cardstock so I would not have to do any skin toned colouring.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark, then embossed with Black powder. I coloured in the letters with our Clear Shimmer Pen afterwards.
The reeds are stamped with Willow and Emerald ink. My mermaid is coloured in with Shin Han Alcohol markers. I also added a sparkly amazing flower sequins from the coordination Make Waves Sequins and Gems pack.
All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
