THE ENTIRE OCEAN IN A DROP

Mermaid 04

 

I have always loved this quote.  I just free-hand watercolored a (very large) droplet on watercolor paper, spattered a little paint here and there, stamped the sentiment, and then added some copper spot-foiling.

Mermaid 05

A simple one-layer card–again, I used pigment inks.  I was so taken with this color scheme that I think I used it on every single design… If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, eh?!

I just let the stamp tail bleed off the fold/gutter crease of the card.  Because I used pigment inks, I was able to use this pretty glittery Under The Sea embossing powder. (similar:  Mermaid TailsCoastal  )  The day I was shooting, I couldn’t get the camera to pick up the sparkle, which is subtle, but IRL,  a lovely, delicate touch that highlights the detail on the mermaid’s scales…  And, these Seaside Holiday sequins by 28 Lilac Lane ??? *PERFECT* compliment and finishing touch!

EEP!!!

I had a ball making samples for it and will be sharing those all week here. :)  Shameless confession: I think I squealed after finishing each one!

Here’s what I’m startin’ with today:

Mermaid 07

 

Under sea images from the previously released Otter Ware set coordinate beautifully with the new Mermaid Tail. I just used pigment inks to do the stamping and die cut the tail (stamped with Aquamarine onto Easter Grass card stock), trimming away the unneeded portion after 3D mounting it to the white panel! A few Crystal NUVO drops coordinating colors and BAM!!!

I’ll have another to share tomorrow. Promise.

:)
