Today's card showcases the Tropical Mermaid Alana stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I used the digi version of the stamp set and my background paper is also digi paper (Digi4002FS Watercolor Paper Blue).
I brought in the digi paper first onto my Word document and then inserted the .png version of the image and layered it on top of the digi paper. The image portion stayed white while the rest of the background was the digi paper. I then changed the shape and added a silver border before printing the entire thing and fussy cutting it out.
The image was colored with Copic markers. Shimmering Sea glitter and Sea Spray glitter accents her body. Oceanic glass glitter was used to accent the sea floor and Neptune Nuvo Crystal Drops accent the water bubbles.
The sentiment was printed at the same time and die cut using a Sizzix die (Tim Holtz Labels). While the die cut was still in the die, I outlined the inside of the die using a Sakura glue pen and then covered the glue line with Sea Spray glitter. The small images inside the sentiment were colored with colored pencils.
A strip of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and 1/8" Tear-ific Tape were added to the front panel and covered with more Oceanic glass glitter. The sentiment was then pop dotted on top of these strips.
