Playing in The Greeting Farm Digi Relay this week while Jess and Marie are away at CHA!!!!
A Mer Ian for Mermaid Anya!!!
This week over at The Greeting Farm while Marie and Jess are away at CHA (I got a call from my sweet good friend Jess this morning and they are having a ton of fun at CHA by the way I am so so jealous all the wonderful stampers they are meeting up with!!!!) any way while the cat's away the mice will play and by mice I mean us customers are challenged to participate in The Greeting Farm Digi Relay all week long. I am not sure if I will get to play all week but I had time today so today you are suppoed to download this Mer Ian image and print him color him and make a creation with him.
When I saw him I knew I had to somewhat recreate a card I made over a year ago I changed it some but I cut out the shape of a Sea Shell painted it up with Hi Ho Silver, Angel Wings, and Bubble Gum Shimmerz so it looks like a real sea shell!!!!
I colored up Mer Ian with my copics and popped him and Mermaid Anya up with excess foam and rubber from my TGF stamps and then I hand drew the treasure chest and cut it out and colored it with my copics as well the Treasure is a mix of SU! silver beads and bling embellies and silver and irredescent dew drops.
Here is the Full Card. I redrew the treasure chest and made a new shell but I have to confess I reused my Mermaid Anya from last year so my coloring was much different back then than it is now, but I have always loved all the teal shades in her hair that is why I can not bear to part with my original card!!! Here is a picture of the original from last year.
Now I have to color up a 2nd Mermaid Anya so my first Sea Shell Card is a complete project again!!!! LoL!!! I could not figure out a sentiment for the card I made today with Mer Ian though???
So For Mer Ian I colored him up in these Copics:
Skin: ROO, E00, E93, RV21
Hair: E50, E53, E55, BG10, BG15, BG18, YG00, YG03, YG09,
I colored up the Treasure chest with C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, 100
Well I am off now to clean walk on my treadmill and then make my card for Tomorrow's Tart and Tangy Tuesdays and some time in the next few days to a week I have some more very very exciting News to Announce on my blog I am having a hard time not bursting over here not being able to say anything yet!!!!
