LLLC: Let’s be Mermaids!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and then not feeling great on top has kept my blog very quiet. I am back again now though, with my Team Friday make for La-La Land Crafts. This week we are showcasing mermaids! As the last one I did was very green and blue, I decided to opt for something completely different: yellow and pink! It’s quite fun to colour mermaids, I think, and I love the matching sentiment! You can find links to all the products below the photo of the card.

LLLC: Sassy Mermaid Molli

There is a NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts TODAY! Wooo! It has a maritime theme and contains 2 background stamps, 3 clear stamp sets, 9 rubber stamps and 3 stencil sets. Yup, you read that right! There are more background and clear stamps AND there are stencils! I have tried them all and they are great! Really great!

What is a new release without a shaker card?

As you might have seen, I seem to colour up more no-lines than not with LLLC stamps, so of course it is another one of those! This time it is a mermaid and she was quite fun to colour up. If you want to colour up the tail like I have, then you can just use the technique I showed in the sparkly dress video here. It works for this as well!

For the background I have used both the big background stamp as well as the two sets of smaller fish. I’ve also used the smaller fish on the background inside the shaker area (made them with clear embossing powder), but it is a bit hard to see as I have layed the card down so you can see all the pretty sequins!

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:

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.
