It's Sweet November July Review day at C.C. Designs blog! My card features all three little mermaids (Hanalei, Nalu, and Nami) that were released as a set. I used a digital scene "Under the Sea" (sorry I do not recall the artist or company), and digitally layered the mermaids over the top. To add a bit of dimension, I re-printed portions of the two large seaweed plants, colored them, fussy cut them, and glued them on top of the image. Prior to printing, the under water scene, I digitally added base color to the seafloor and the water. The shading was done with Copics. All the other items in the scene were colored with Copics. Crystal Stickles gives the mermaid tails some glitz. (Note: do not waste time dotting on your color if you use glitter over the top. Your hard work will not show through!!! Lesson learned the hard way.) The bubbles shine with a layer of Paper Glaze.
This card was fun to color and create! Amy's images have such a joy to them, and these little mermaids are no exception!
