Our theme is spring fling. We've had a brutal winter, lots of snow and frigid temperatures. I'm thinking I want to be a mermaid in warm water. She doesn't have to wear a winter coat, snow boots, gloves, and knit hat ! My spring theme is let's thaw out so my fish can swim again in my yard's pond.
Just so you know, my mermaid is NOT blue from the cold. I got my inspiration from a kid's cartoon show on television--the blue mermaid. Please note I had a terrible time trying to capture the shiny silver.
I converted the mermaid to a ping file and adapted the color to blue/green. I layered her on top of the fizzy water paper which I resized. After printing this, I developed my card.
I used some blue ink markers that blended with a water pen. to color my mermaid blue I added a silver ink pen to the fish scales and hair and a glitter pen to the bubbles, headband
The mat is blue card stock which I embossed with circles. Then I added some clear gems for additional "bubbles", some fiber and a silver metal shell charm. Everything is placed on a white card.
