Look at me fussy cutting for the tictactoechallenge.com
this week. I went for the middle row across with circle (two for the sentiment),
linen thread (used behind the circles) and birthday (love this sentiment)
All images are from a wonderful set that will probably get passed over
called Magical Mermaid. I grabbed a piece of the Naturally Eclectic DSP
because it already looks water colored and stamp some sea grass or seaweed in
Basic Grayand faintly stamped the shells stamp along the bottom.
I stamped the sentiment in Real Red on Whisper White- circle cut
and layered on a Basic Gray circle. I added some linen thread behind.
For my mermaid, I stamped her on water color paper
with Memento Tuxedo Black and let her dry while I did the other element of the card.
I then colored her with my water color pencils and used my aqua painter.
I used Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point on her tail, and Pacific point on her hair braid.
I lightly colored her skin with Calypso Coral. I used Real Red on her hair.
The Real red was not dark enough for me some I went back over it
with Real Red ink straight from the pad.
I did fussy cut her out...not well on the hair part but the body was easy enough.
I finished it with some rhinestones for bling.
Hope you can play along with the challenge this week.
Thanks for stopping by and have a magical day!
