Dreams of A Watercolor Mermaid
The Crafty Nurse “swimming” by to share some mid-week inspiration using stamps from the Technique Junkies June release. You still have a few days to receive 15% percent off this great release over at the Technique Junkies store.
The background for my card is from Sensational Stencils CD called Distress Stain Dip. I changed it up to use Distress Paint instead of stains in the colors Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon and Wild Honey. I added a wave texture using a Tim Holtz Stencil then added additional distress ink around the edges.
For the focal image, I stamped “Mermaid on Rock” onto 140lb. watercolor paper with Archival Ink. I colored my mermaid using Windsor Newton Watercolor markers and added highlights with prismacolor pencils. Adding pencils over watercolor is a great way to add depth to your coloring.
Enjoy your day!!
