Hello and welcome back! I know you're probably sick of it by now, but I have another underwater card for you today. With the new cue from CASology, I just couldn't resist!
See? How could I possibly resist making another ocean themed card with a cue like that? It's just begging to be colored!
I switched it up a little this time and made my little mermaid sit on the sea floor. I started my card by cutting a panel with a stitched rectangle die and then used my MISTI to stamp both my image and my sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I used my copics to color in my mermaid. This time, I wanted to show a little love to my dark-skinned sisters and made her more Latin inspired. I used brown to color her hair and then thought it was a little too light, so I added some warm gray over the top to tone it down and it created this gorgeous color that I just adore!
When my mermaid was colored, I added in the sea floor beneath her by coloring in the basic shape with a light brown and then going over the top of it with little dots of darker browns. I focused the darker browns where her shadow would fall and then gradually decreased the darkness as her shadow would fade.
I used stripes of blue, blue green, and blue violet to create my ocean water. When I was satisfied with how the color looked, I went back in with my colorless blender, BG11, B93, and a white gel pen to add dots of bubbles surrounding my mermaid. (If you'd like a tutorial for the water portion, I made one in an earlier post. Just click here.)
I added my finished panel to my card base using my tape runner and I was finished!
Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to link up your creations on the CASology post!
