It's Monochromatic week!
While blue is shown here, you can choose whichever colour you like!
Now let me show you what I've created. I decided to go ahead and use the blue colors, as I was using the Mari Digis Mermaid. Here is my card:
I wanted to make as much of my mermaid in the blue family as possible, including her tail, hair, and eyes. I used my Prismacolors to color her and the seahorse. Now let me tell you about the background. I was experimenting (I do that a lot...sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Lol). I saw a card on Pinterest with a background that reminded me of a hot glue streak once dried. So I decided to make "steams" of hot glue across the card for the streams of water. It looked a little plain to me, so I decided to go ahead and add glitter. But...since it was dry already...I heated up sections at a time and sprinkled glitter into the glue. I used that technique also for the bubbles.
I then took my Tim Holtz Ink Oxide (Broken China) and swabbed all over the card with my dauber. I also took some cheesecloth and made it into a "netting". Added some flat blue rhinestones...and it was done! It came out a lot better than I expected. I hope you like it and will try the hot glue technique!
Thanks for stopping by!
