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".
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".
