Today I'm showing you the new Aquatic Fantasy set featuring this lovely mermaid. I stamped her, colored her with Copics, and cut her out. Oh, the texture on her tail....simple made by holding down the tip of my Copic colorless blender in a spot for about 2 second and then moving on to the next spot. It takes a minute to develop and then you'll end up with this scaly texture. I made the little ocean panel behind her by sponging Bashful Blue at the top, Tempting Turquoise in the middle and Pacific Point at the bottom and really "scrubbing" those sponges to blend the colors. I assembled all the pieces and stamped the sentiment to finish.
Now hop on over to Kim's Fab blog for the next sample!
