Waving Hello from Under the Sea

Samantha here, and today I'm sharing an adorable little card featuring one of the mermaids from the new Mermaid for You stamp set! 

Oh I just love how it came out!
I colored the images with Distress Markers and then fussy cut them out! I added some dot details by dotting in areas with the marker I had watercolored with, as well as a shade darker and a white gel pen! I have to say, I'm totally smitten with that for underwater critters - it looks like they're shimmering under the water!!! I may have colored about...50 other water images like this...ha!

I created the backgound with Ken Oliver Color Bursts and then sprayed water along the edges of the color, so it would really soften them up - totally in LOVE with that look! 

I finished the card with a little Spectrum Noir glitter pen in clear on the crown and sea horse fins! :)

Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!
Hope this card made you smile and inspired you to get watercoloring!
