Hi, everyone, Kelli here! Today's card uses the adorable Mermaid Anya stamp by The Greeting Farm. You can tell she's a favorite of the iCopic team! I stamped her in the trusty Memento - Tuxedo Black Ink. I want to first tell you about what I did with the card base. I used the extremely awesome Fireworks Spray in Rose Bud. First I punched out a bunch of different sized circles and attached them to a kraft card base with removable adhesive (to use as masks). Then I spritzed it a couple times with the Fireworks Spay and removed the circles. I absolutely love the vivid color and the awesome shimmer it has! So pretty!!! Also, they come in colors to match the Memento Inks!
The 'Sending You Smiles' sentiment I used came from the SP & Company - Ultimate Sentiments I set and it was stamped in the VersaFine - OnyxBlank ink. I love this black ink for sentiments. It takes a couple minutes to dry, but the crisp image it leaves is definitely worth it.
To color Mermaid Anya, I used Copics:
hair - E31, Y35, Y21, Y11 and Y000
skin - YR00, E00, E000
cheeks - R22 and R20
eye shadow and bikini top - RV29, RV25 and RV23 - AtYou Spica - Clear
tail - G28, G24, YG25 and YG23
After I colored her tail, I covered it in Glossy Accents (love this stuff!) and before it dried, I added a little pink and green glitter to the bottom fins.
The blue polka dot paper is from the Wild Rose Studio - Wintry Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad. Ironically, it came from a Christmas pad, but I thought it was a perfect ocean/sky color for this card! I also used the Authentique - Blissful 6x6 Paper Pad for the little yellow scalloped edge accent that you can see in the first picture.
I wanted to try to get a different angle on the Fireworks Spray so you could see the great shimmer that it has!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day! :)
