Mermaid Shellina by Make It Crafty

Just finished up a new project in celebration of Make It Crafty sponsor week over at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook group. This card features the digital image Mermaid Shellina by Make It Crafty. I’m not usually a mermaid person, but something about this image was just captivating and I had to give it a try. I didn’t want the image background to remain white, but wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. So after some experimentation, I decided to use a light color combination to achieve a glow around the central characters.

In my stash, I had a sheet of cardstock from American Crafts – Aqua Wave – that was perfect for the card background, giving the impression of both bubbles and waves. I added a chipboard sentiment, also from Make It Crafty, that I colored with Copic markers in an ombre pattern to coordinate with the colors of my mermaid. After coloring the chipboard, I covered the letters with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew to add some gloss. You can achieve the same effect with Ranger’s Glossy Accents.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post. Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
