Well, I'm back quicker than I thought I'd be! lol
When I wrote yesterday's post, I didn't realize today is another review day for All That Scraps! It's a good thing I had my card ready to go! lol
The ATS design team and I are sharing some new creations using the latest offerings from Christine's Swiss Pixies and Beatrice collections. I shared Snorkeling Beatrice with you all last week, so this week I colored up Mermaid Lucy for you!
I looove coloring in mermaids and fairies for one simple reason.....I get to use glitter! :) There are few things in this world that make you feel like a kid again, but personally, I think one of those things is glitter! Who doesn't love a bit of sparkle on their cards?!
Usually I color in the image first before making the card, but this time, I made the base first then colored up the image. Not sure why, but it worked out pretty well, I think! The papers are from an old like of Bo Bunny. Can you spot some new toys I have?? I got some birthday money from my family, so I bought some much needed crafting goodies! Honestly, the last time I bought paper or ribbon was almost two years ago! Shocking right?! But I digress....back to the card, shall we?! :)
I colored up Lucy with my reinkers and aquapainter brush. I used SU's Creamy Caramel for her face and Pretty In Pink for her cheeks. Then I used Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Ink for her hair. Her fin was colored with Certain Celery, Morning Marigold and Old Olive. Then I added some Star Dust Stickles to her fin and starfish hair clip. The logo is from the new Beach Logo's set and the sentiment is from Amy R.'s Oh So Beachy sentiment set. Oh! And tucked just behind Lucy, is the new bubble border die from ATS! The layout is this week's Viva La Verve sketch....I couldn't pass up all the layers! ;)
If you need to feed your ATS addiction just a little bit more, then head on over to the ATS blog to check out what the rest of the design team whipped up for you today!
