Under the Sea
In A Sweet Pea Dream challenges set the challenge of "Under The Sea". I am trying to stock pile a few birthday cards for those "in a hurry" times. The stamp is the only mermaid one I have from SweetPea and although I used it a few weeks ago, I have changed both the colour scheme and layout.
To emphasise the "Under the Sea" of the challenge, I have used a recessed window in which to site the main image.
She is coloured primarily with promarkers with just a hint of pearlised paints to highlight.
The main BP is from the Mint Choc Chip Muddle set of Crafty Chaos' delicious papers. (Slightly digitally changed to get a colour I wanted better). The lines are so similar to the tail of our mermaid, it screamed "Use Me".
The two octogons were cut from half a sheet of a DP recieved in a RAK so do not know the origin - sorry. These were backed with some holographic miri as was the sentiment. That was stamped in green stazon on a scrap left over of the main BP.
The recipe I followed was that over on Sparkles Forum Challenges. 5 Gems, 4 Brads, 3 Flowers, 2 Buttons, 1 Ribbon/bow. The buttons are used in the middle of two of the flowers (all home made)
The whole thing was then finished off with some wavy line peeloffs.
The challenges I am entering this into are on
