Hi everyone, today I am part of a celebratory video hop for Katharine Kelly reaching a milestone of 1K subscribers on her
YouTube Channel. For my card, I created an alcohol ink background inspired by a card Katharine made. I completed my card using
the Sugar Pea Designs’ Mermaid Kisses stamp set.
I began my card by embossing a panel of an alcohol ink cardstock with a mermaid scale embossing folder. I believe this particular
embossing folder is discontinued but I will link to another option below.
To create the background, I added several shades in the blue, teal, and aqua to create the ocean background for the mermaid image.
The fun part of creating with alcohol inks is that you can keep going as long as you want. There does not seem to be the,
“Oh I went too far” syndrome.
While the background was drying, I stamped the image out onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock stock with
Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image in with Copic Markers.
Copic Coloring Combination
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Mermaid’s Hair: E50, E51, E53, E55
Mermaid’s Tail: RV66, RV63, RV52, RV10
Rock: W7, W5, W3, W1, W0
After the coloring was finished, I used my Brother ScanNCut to cut the image out and a stitched circle die to die cut a piece of vellum.
To finish this card, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock, heat set it with white embossing powder and
adhered all of the elements to a white A2 sized card base.
I have a video tutorial on my channel, where I share how I created this card as well as all of the information about the GIVEAWAY.
