For this week's sketch I made a birthday card for an eight year old girl who loves mermaids. I started off by stamping the Whimsical Waves Background stamp on watercolor paper in my MISTI. I used Blue Raspberry hybrid ink, then I stamped it again with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW clear embossing powder. Next I colored the waves with Zig markers and let the panel dry.
The mermaid, fish, turtle, shell and rock are colored with Copic markers. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment on the rock after I lightly colored it. The fish are coated with Clear Wink of Stella, and the tutrle's shell has two layers of Glossy Accents on it. I also used Glossy Accents to make tiny bubbles near the fish. I used a clear glitter pen to make scales on the mermaid's tail.
I love these little mermaids, and I know the little girl I made the card for will love it too. Thanks so much for taking a look, I appreciate it!
