Copic Coloured Mermaid Slimline Card | 7 Kids Crafts Bubble Babies
Updated: Sep 14, 2020
Hello Everyone, Thank you so much for stopping by!! Today I have a sponsored youtube hop by 7 Kids Craft Store if you would like to see what the other ladies created please check out my youtube video linked below!!
This is my first time working with Digital stamps and I had so much fun, after laying out the images how I wanted in photoshop I printed it out on 80lb Neenah Solar White Card stock, trimmed it down and started my colouring. I also trimmed down my card base to 7 x 8.5 inches and scored it at 3.5 inches which is my preferred Slimline card size and cut a black matte to be 1/8 of an inch smaller than my card base.
If you want to see how I coloured anything specifically I urge you to watch my youtube video which is linked down below where I explain everything step by step and show you the full making of the card. I am just going to list the Copic colours used instead of trying to explain my colouring, as honestly I just used the colours that made me happy in a few places.
For the rocks, I used C1, C3 and C5, the seaweed and greenery are G05 and G14, the mermaid tail's are V15 and V17, the mermaid's skin is E11 and E13, the mermaid's cheeks and lips is R22, the mermaid's hair is E15, E17 and E07, the turtle is G05, G14 and YG 05, the flower is RV04 and RV21, and the water is BG11, BG13, BG15.
Once all the colouring was done I used Distress Collage Medium with a fine tip, I filled in all of the bubbles and sprinkled Distress Glitter in Clear Rock Candy over top for some shimmer and shine. While the glue was drying I used my Nuvo Deluxe Glue to stick down the black matte to the base and the coloured panel to the black matte.
