Mermaid; photo inspiration challenge

It’s the middle of May already! How did that happen?! hmm.. Oh well, it does mean it’s time for another challenge at Copic Marker Norge, and this time we have a photo inspiration challenge.

This is the card I made. I decided on a mermaid to represent the ocean and then I tried to mostly stick to the colours used on the inspirational photo. The image I used is by Ching-Chou Kuik and one of the very first mermaids I’ve ever coloured! Various other bits are by Papermania, Wild Orchid Crafts and Martha Stewart. The image is obviously coloured with Copics.

Here is another view of the card:

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, R22, (blue-green) BG05, B000, BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, G29, (pink) R39, R81, R83, R85, R89, (leaves) YG01, YG67, YG99, (background) R81, RV000, B000, B81

Mermaid and turtle

I went through the photos I’ve taken of the cards made over this summer and realised I have made quite a few more than I had thought. This means I am miles behind posting them here on the blog, so it’s about time I upped the frequency on putting them up. The recent two-week gap in posting them was due to a holiday, and I hadn’t scheduled any. However, back to work and back to blogging this week.

This first one is inspired by summer. I have used a pre-coloured topper by The Hobby House, a Sylvia Zet image. I distress inked the image around the edge and made an easel card out of it. The flowers, ribbon and bow are all by Wild Orchid Crafts. The sea shells were bought in a shop called Black Design and the leaves were made with a Martha Stewart puncher.
