mermaids have more fun - Colour Crazy wk. 42

Friday October 23, 2020

Hello.. I have a card to share for the challenge over at 

Our theme is ANYTHING GOES

Our sponsor this week is ODDBALL ART
I am using the image called Nixi spirit of the sea mermaid

I first created the background using ShinHan watercolor paints. I set it aside to dry. I then used Paul Ruben metallic watercolors and painted the little mermaid image. I tried to be careful as I printed the image on card stock vs. watercolor paper.. It came out ok. The metallic paints are so pretty. I then fussy cut the image out. I dug through my watercolor die cut images and found these My favorite things sea grass and fish. I also found a couple other greenery so added them. The sentient is also from Oddball. I finished with some clear jewels.

 I hope you can see the metallic paints better on the mermaid in this close up..
