As it's Tuesday today, I get to share with you the card I made with one of the new mermaids being released at Bugaboo Stamps today. Her name is AKV Mermaid 7 and she is in the Bugaboo store HERE.
I printed the image onto sugar paper (in the US it is called construction paper) and the colouring is watercolour pencils. I added some gems as embellishments, a stick on sentiment "Celebrate" and a Cuttlebug diecut of a pretty shell. I have matted the sugar paper in white CS and then red CS, so in effect, here are 4 layers on this card, and 5 if you count the shell and the sentiment as another layer. I know this is somewhat of a different style of card for me, but I started out using coloured pencils for colouring my images, and still love the effect of the light coloured pencils on a dark background. I think it works for this image, and it looks like it is a 'night shot' and as if the mermaid is glowing in the moonlight. What do you think?
I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
GINGERLOFT, #GL40, ‘UNDER THE SEA’ (well part of the image is…)
