Design Team make for "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" #414 Disney Inspired

It's time for a new prompt on the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog".  Challenge #414 is "Disney Inspired".  If you have a minute to spare, please do pop over and take a look at the fabulous makes by my Design Team colleagues and maybe enter the challenge yourself?

I decided to go with a mermaid theme. I used a background I had prepared a while back.  It was made using the gelli plate and from memorey "artichoke" Colorbox ink brayered onto the plate and "turquoise" Brusho splashed onto the plate using a fan brush.

I used three Visible Image stamp sets to create this card.  First I stamped the mermaid (Visible Image "Mythical Mermaid" stamp set) on to the coloured card base and also onto an off-cut of white card, using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" in both instances. 

Using the coloured card base I stamped the rays over the head of the mermaid using Visible Image "Rays of light" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Paradise" blue ink.

Using a stamp from the Visible Image "Dare to swim" stamp set, I stamped the sea weed using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.

I then coloured the image of the mermaid, using a black fine line marker pen for the staff (both on the coloured background and the area by the arm of the mermaid).  I used "Tattered Rose" Distress Oxide Ink (applied with a paint brush) for the skin and an assortment of Signo Pens for the rest of the mermaid.  I then cut the image out wit the exception of the staff and adhered onto the card. 

I inked the edges of the card in a blue Distress Oxide ink called "Blueprint Sketch" and then stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

Finally, I stamped the air bubbles using a Lavinia Stamps "Sea Bubbles" stamp in Versafine Clair "Paradise" blue ink and coloured them with a white Posca Pen.
