Mariner Mermaid Card - Ink On 3


Hello friends!

Have you ever seen a sexier mermaid stamp?! I haven't... Wowzers 😜

This beauty comes from Ink On 3's latest release! For this card, I didn't want to stamp the mermaid in black ink and I really didn't want to do a no line watercoloring. So I thought I would experiment by stamping the image out using frayed burlap oxide ink and I love the results. The stamped line once it came in contact with the watercolors oxidized and lightened the lines giving it a semi no line watercolor look.

To color the mermaid in, I used my Tombow Dual brush markers. Once she was dry I then fussy cut the entire image out. This is a fairly large stamp so it wasn't as difficult as it looks but I did need the help of my retractable PenBlade.

To create the background I wet the paper and then lightly touched the wet areas with Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers. These colors are so vibrant a little goes a long way. Just before the area dried I then used my distress spray bottle to splash and spread the ink around. I repeated that a few times with different colors, using my heat tool to help speed up the drying process. Once the entire background was done and dry I sprayed the background again this time picking up the droplets with paper towel.

To finish the card I then attached some jewelry chain to the anchor and used a metal wire to secure it to the top of the card panel, bending and taping the wire to the back to secure it in place. I then attached it to the A2 sized cardbase, sandwiching the wire in between both layers. I did not glue the mermaid down as I wanted her to swing freely on the front of the card. (see previous image)

Here is a closer look at the details 😍
