Make Waves | Inked: July 2018

Hello everyone! Today I have another card made with one of the really cute Inked girls from The Ink Road Stamps. More information about this monthly subscription and a referral code are down below. The colors for this card were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge <-------- click

Watch the video here.

I used my Copic markers to color in the mermaid image but I also did some paper piecing with Simon Says Stamp pink glitter paper. This paper is really nice and does not flake, which is important for someone (like me) who does not like glitter everywhere.

For the background I used a Hero Arts stencil and Distress Ink Hickory Smoke. I did this ink blending on my glass media mat, which makes clean up so easy. I secured the stencil and cardstock to the glass media mat with washi tape and that made it easy to peel up and check how my ink coverage was going.

I used some nesting circle dies in various sizes to cut out of the stenciled background after running that through the bigshot with a stitched rectangle die. Then I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum and placed that behind the background. I then layered a smoke gray cardstock behind the vellum and attached those pieces to a card base.

The only thing left to do is add the sequins and nuvo drops, which I scattered along the die cut circles. I did also color in the head piece and the end of her tail with a glitter pen then coated that with glossy accents.

Copic Markers Used:
E81, E43, E00
BG18, BG15, BG13, BG10
