Guest Designer Jo with an AWESOME MERMAID card!

Hi everyone, Jo here with my last project as July Guest Designer for The Greeting Farm. I had such an amazing time creating again with TGF images. By far this is one of my favorite cards. I used two stamp sets:

 

 

Little Mermaids

Mermaid Grotto

 

I knew I wanted to have a mermaid inside the glass bottle. I chose which images I wanted and colored them all with Copics. This was the first time I ever colored the whole background with markers. Next, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom left corner, I tried not to color the paper too dark. I then fussy cut all the images and started to build the scene. I layered and stacked the only seaweed image in the Little Mermaids stamp set. I wanted it to look lush and full. The base of the background is a wave die. 

 

 

Skin: E00/E11/BV00/R81/R20

Pinks: RV04/RV19/RV69

Purples: V12/V15/V17/V09

Greens: YG03/YG67/G14/G43

Yellow: Y13/YR23

Teal: BG13/BG15/BG23/BG49

Sand: E31/E35/E29

Sand Castle: Y13/YR23/E31/E33/E29

Red Coral: R27

 

 

The fishes were actually stamped/colored on sticker paper and it made it easy to adhere it to the card. The final touches were to add some Stickles (Star Dust & Yellow) to a few images. I also used a white gel pen to add freckles to the mermaid.

 

 

I'd like to thank Marie and The Greeting Farm for having me as a Guest Designer. Thank you so much for letting me share my creations. 'Til we meet again!

This is an amazing scene. There’s so much to look at! I can’t believe you only used one small seaweed stamp to create all that lushness!
