Something Cute

Hi there!
This week at My Heart Pieces we are to make something cute.  I think Mermaids are cute!  And so this image was selected and coloured with my markers, twice, then one cut out.  Yes, her skin is blue.  I love the look of popping out a portion of an image to give it depth!  Dug around and found the small seashells I stole from my mom's collection and then added the gold negative sheet from making sequins. (I got it from my friend I have NO idea where to get more! LOL!)  It was a happy fluke that the paint chip I chose to use had the bottom colour listed as Ocean Sea!  Final card is 6x6".

Of course I had to keep making cards! :)
This one is also coloured with markers, then I believe it is called 'fussy cut' out the image with small scissors and a blade.  I wanted to show off the Alcohol ink background I cut out using Spellbinders Labels 20 then embossed with a shell pattern (that did not show up very well).  Placed this on blue mulberry paper then saw some pale blue netting out of the corner of my eye.  So I added it over the entire thing and secured with gold brads. Card size is 5 x 6 1/2".

And this last one I took my watercolour crayons and brush to.  Used my Spellbinders Label 22 to cut out the image then hand cut a thin mat onto metalic blue paper.  This is matted onto my girlfriend's hand made marble paper, then patterned vellum.  Nice and elegant, as well as cute!  Card size is 5 x 6 1/2".
