By the Sea

By the Sea - It is time for another sketch challenge at Sunday Sketch and Stamp. This challenge is sponsored by Crimson Cloud. Crimson Cloud has lots of lush inks, papers and flowers for your every crafting need.

My DP's are from one of my favorite paper pads, Afternoon Muse by Glitz. My corner die is CB.

Here is the lovely sketch that is the challenge for Sunday Sketch and Stamp. It is a good one, so I hope that you will join us for this weeks challenge.

My image is The Greeting Farms Mermaid. The was one of the first stamps that I bought I first started coloring with Copics. She is so easy and simple to color with her big open areas. I hand drew her rock. After she was colored, I added gemstones to her hair.

I used 2 different glitters on her. The glitter that is in the water, is MS ultra fine. The glitter that is on the Mermaid is SU iridescence.

My flower was made by stamping a scenic image on white paper, then blending it with spun sugar distress ink. It was cut with a SB, then wet and shaped. The layers are held together with a brad. The green curls are formed by wrapping a wire around a thin paintbrush handle. The gemstone swirl is Recollections.
