This darling image is called the “Hawaiian Mermaid” and is by digital artist Francesca Lopez. This image is the latest for her Progressional Challenge at her “CUTE AS A BUTTON” site.
I had originally wanted to make her a “puzzle” card, but I cut the image out and couldn’t do that. I went ahead and built the card inside of the “Shaker Dome” anyway, which you can get from our own Samantha, AKA MsWipz, on Ebay. The Domes are a joy to work with.
The image is colored with my Copic Markers and surrounded by an assortment of Dies. I used the following: Happy Birthday and Music Notes are by Die-namics from My Favorite Things; the Magical Castle and Seaweed are by Gina Marie Dies. I also used a Circle Nestability Die by Spellbinders.
I topped the card with a layer of white paper, which I embossed with an Embossing Folder called “Tide.” This folder was made by Memory Maker’s “Life Time” Crafts. I finished it off by wrapping the Dome with Twine, which was also made by Memory Makers. I don’t know the name of the “Sand-looking” paper, but the blue background paper is by Sandy Lion. The Gold Paper is from My Favorite Things. I also used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.
