MERMAID



For this post I used another of  Bonna Kelly's digital stamps called "Capricorn" from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique.  I didn't like the horns on the mermaids head so I removed them and added a Bikini top by just drawing a pencil line across the bust.


I used copics and polychromos pencils to coloured this image.  I used a black gel black to enhance the hair texture and colour.  I used two different stickles glitter glue on the tail and used a glitter pen on the fins - adding a small amount of stickles to the fins to enhanse the sparkle.  I used a gold glitter pen to colour the bikini top.

As the image was bold along with the colouring I didn't think it needed any extra colour so I embossed some white card and used.  I also used a white texture cardstock for the matting.

Embossing folders (Cuttlebug)  1 edge flourish border
                                                       swirl folder
                     Used Mandala board - diamond crafts

Dies used:  Magnolia doily flower die
                     Cuttlebug corner die

Embellishments:  Ribbon, bow, pearls

I really like this image and hope you like what I've done with it.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment. 

Best wishes,
