Bugaboo 7th birthday celebration over at Catch the Bug, with daily challenges and lots of possibilities to win prizes. The theme of the week is "under the sea".
For day 1 we have a photo inspiration. I chose to color up the sweet ava mermaid with Spectrum Noirs and a gel pen, and I used my DIs to make her the underwater scene. I know many of you have probably went down this road before, but I haven't been confident using my inks for that long yet. I used blue, purple and green DIs.
The "seagrass" is made using a freebie stamp and I stamped a birthday greeting in Norwegian. I also added some silver liquid pearls to her hair and the water. The bubbles have glitter glue. A little sprinkle of water before I added a coat of Perfect Pearl for a shimmery effect, which I didn't capture in the photo. I attached the panel to a black card base. It's rare I don't use any sort of dies or DPs, so this is a bit different for me. Its'a 100% flat and if it weren't for the cardbase it would be a one layer.
