Today it's my turn to show you a card that I made. This time I choosed to make a little underwater scéne with some mermaids and fishes. I have the Little Mermaids stamp by The Greeting Farm almost 1 year and I finally had some time to play with it!
First I stamped the images with my Memento Desert Sand ink pad on some Neenah cardstock so I can use the no lines technique to colour in. I overdrew the eyes with a black Copic multiliner 0.1 and let it dry for a few minutes.
I started to add a layer on E51 on the bottom of the cardstock to make it like sand.
Then I coloured the rest of the sand a little bit wavy because it's in water with my E55 en E53 markers.
Now the sand needs a bit more texture and I did it with adding some dots of the same colours on top of sand.
Then I coloured the sandcastle and I used E57, E55, E53 and E51 for that. I also darkend the shadow around the castle with my E57 marker to let the castle pop out more.
After that I did the water but I forgot to take pictures in between, so stupid. I decided to have my lightsource at the right upper corner and let it fall down like hairstrokes. You have to do flicky moves.
Here you can see that I coloured a bit over the other images that are still blank, but that isn't a disaster. You won't see that if you colour the rest.
After that I did the skin of both images. I always start with skin right behind I did the background.
Then I coloured the mermaids with some fun colours. I really like it to give them crazy haircolours.
Here's how it looks like when it was done but I added some details on the bubbles with the Copic Opaque White paint. You can see that on the last picture.
And tadaaaa... Here she is, my mermaidcard!
