Whew!! I am back for ONE more post today!! Can you tell that I am REALLY enjoying having a day off?? I miss creating everyday, but it is nice to know that when I have a day off, I still feel like playing!
I had this Fred She Said image already printed off and she was screaming for me to pretty her up!! I colored her skin and hair with Prismas/Gamsol. But, I wanted to play with something different too. I seem to be always grabbing for the Prismas lately and my other fun things are feeling neglected. So, I colored her tail in with purple, blue and lime Stickles. I just randomly put blobs of the three colors down and then blended them around with a paintbrush. For the fins, I colored directly from the bottle with the blue and lime. For her bodice, I pulled out my Glaze pens and colored it purple. While it was tacky, I took the pen and stippled into the glaze to create a textured look. Finally, I colored the star in her hair with yellow Stickles. Hard to get a photo of the bodice, tail and fins, but here is a closeup that might help see the sparkle and texture.
For the card, I embossed the background, leaving about 1.5" at the bottom to stamp and emboss the sentiment. Tied a ribbon around to cover the line and then layered it onto a white card. Added Emma with pop dots.
