Sea You Soon

Hi everyone, happy Monday! It's mid-day here and I wanted to share the card I made at a crop this past Saturday. I used Under the Sea Mae Clear Stamp from Some Odd Girl Stamps.

I am in LOVE with this card. I was able to use the Martha Stewart Iridescent Hexagon Glitter, OMG this is the best chunky glitter ever! I started from the darkest blue, light blue and then went into the dark green then the light green, creating this awesome ombre effect. I used glossy accents to adhere the glitter on to the card base.

I enjoyed coloring her with my Copics. I even added some of the glitter to her tail. I love to experiment with color techniques and just trying new things. This was my first attempt to blend blues & purples together. I just jumped right in and hoped for the best, SUCCESS!

I also added some texture with the dotting technique. I've seen this done on many images and love the look.
Another mermaid image comes in this stamp set, I can't wait to start coloring her! I might recreate this colored image in a video, so stay tuned on my YouTube Channel: Paperdrama.
