I finally had a chance to pull out MFT’s Mermazing Stamp set I bought in May to make this week’s card for the MFT Sketch Challenge-Sketch 347.
I first stamped the mermaid sitting onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and masked her to stamp the rock behind that she would be sitting on. I also stamped two more rocks as individual pieces.
I used Copic markers to color all of my images in the following combinations:
Skin: E50, E51 and E53
Hair: E50, E53, YR21, YR23, E35 and E37
Tail/hair piece/top: BG10 and BG13, I also used tip to tip for the medium shade blend
Rocks: E31, E35 and E37
I fussy cut all of the images and set them aside for the moment. I wanted a sun set as the background for the little mermaid, and I used a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, an MFT Radiating Rays Stencil and Distress ink to create it.
To put this card together, I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Echo Park Sweet Summertime paper pad using the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables from Lawn Fawn and adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card base. I took the sun rays background and die cut it using a circle die from Hero Arts Infinity Dies and then cut it in half.
I arranged all of the pieces on top of the patterned paper, added a sentiment from the stamp set and a few enamel dots from Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes Enamel Dots collection to complete this card.
I really like the end result of this card and I’ve got a perfect little girl to give this card to. Until next time thanks for stopping by and always sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
