Now onto my project...

I created this card using the super beautiful Mermaid Marci. I just LOVE this image, she is so adorable with her little mermaid fin!

I colored her up with my Copic markers and used my Gold At You Spica glitter pen to color in the starfish in her hair. I fussy cut her and popped her up on dimensionals, layered on top of some doilies I cut out using my nesties. The paper collection is an old stack by DCWV called Ciao Bella.


Here's a close-up...


I created the "seaweed" using a Martha Stewart punch and design paper. The flowers are by I Am Roses and the leaf spray is from my friend Karla's Etsy. The bubbles are little "bling" stickers I received in a RAK from a scrappy friend in Canada.



I finished off the inside of the card too, you can peek at it from this angle...



Color medium: Copic Markers, At You Spica Glitter Pen (Gold)
Skin: E000, E00, E21, R20, BV00
Hair: E74, E77, E79
Starfish: Y21, At You Spica Glitter Pen (Gold)
Fin: G12, BG11, BG13

I'm at the end of today's hop. Thanks so much for playing along! Now be sure to head back to the La-La Land Crafts blog and answer that ONE question for your chance to win the fabulous blog candy that is up for grabs!

Happy Birthday Luka and Marci!

hugs

I love this card I don't have girls as always amazing. How do you pick your colors? you always seem to be able to put together colors you should make a video on how you get inspired that would be great or maybe you already have one. Have a great day
