Try It Out Tuesday #24 - Using Acetate
I love the sea and mermaids. And I'm loving Pink Cat Studios lately! When I saw this set, Under the Sea, at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, I had to have it! Mermaids, seahorses, coral, what could be better? So since it's Tuesday and Suzanne challenged us to use acetate on our card or project, This idea came to me. I thought I'd bring a little bit of the sea world to my room!
First off I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. She was a bit too long for the aquarium (plastic container that some of my Debbie Mumm ribbon came in!) so I used my nestabilities to make a portrait of her. I used some stickles and Glossy Accents to make her look sparkly and wet!
I used some silver thread to suspend her and filled the bottom with sand and added a few sea shells.
I love this paper that someone gave me and thought the sea horse was a perfect backdrop for her.
I thought her face was just so beautiful and ethereal. I would love to know what she's thinking!
And here's a close up of her fins. I wanted her to look scaly but in a feminine way. I'm really pleased with how she came out.
Make sure you stop by our store blog, Follow Your Heart, and see what gorgeous things my design team pals have come up with. There's such a talented bunch that I just know you won't be disappointed! Hope you enjoy being under the sea!
