Missing You Mermaid Postcard
Today I've created a postcard of the "wish you were here" variety. I used Daniel Smith 140# cold press watercolor postcard as the base and scribbled a little Karat Aquarell watercolor crayons dry onto it, then blended it with water. The image and sentiment is from the Smeared Ink carnies unmounted set, stamped with Palette Hybrid ink in Noir. The sea bits are die cut from Bazzill cardstock using Slice with the Under the Sea cartridge. The felt bits and rickrack are from a Simplicity Craft Studio set. The mermaid flesh is another of the watercolor crayons (peach) but the rest of her is colored in with Plaid Keepsake Colors gel paints. The sea was glazed with the gel paints. This left everything to bright so I added some denim dye ink from Posh Impressions to a little water in a spray bottle and sprayed over everything except the wave, then dabbed some off to add texture. Hope you like and hope this one posts!
