• Pirate mermaid

    Hello everyone!

    I've been quiet for a while. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know why. Last Friday one of our doggies crossed the rainbow bridge and I'm heartbroken. I didn't think I'd find the energy to craft, but like many times before the coloring process is good for me. It takes my mind off of things. So today I'm sharing this pirate mermaid card with you.

    Digital stamp seem to challenge me more in my coloring. Larger images, more details. And that's just what I needed! I first printed this digital Faery Ink Pirate Mermaid Jolly Roger on Neenah cardstock and colored it with my Copics. I then cut it out with a My favorite things Mod stitched rectangle die.

    So, she's perched on a rock wearing a longfull look on her face and a pirate's hat. Obviously she's missing someone special. And with everything that's been going on here, the MFT Miss you die just seemed appropriate. I die cut it from white carstock 4 times and layered them, embossing the top layer with WOW! Pink Fizz embossing glitter.

    I adhered a piece of craft foam on the back of the panel and backed it with some patterned paper. I added details with my white Gelly roll pen before running my clear Spectrum Noir glitter pen over the mermaid tail and her bandana. Finally I glued on the sentiment words.
