And here is the original sketch.
I changed it around a wee bit…but that’s the fun part of doing a sketch challenge, right? Taking the original and giving it your own twist?
For this card, I used Homeward Bound and Mermaid Treasure from Bombshell Stamps, of course. I colored the images using both my watercolor markers and my Copics. If you can click on this, or any of my other photos, you will see the image bigger.
I used foam dots to pop up the mermaid and the “Homeward Bound” banner. I also used my beloved Mini Punchinella stencil from the Crafter’s Workshop for the circles in the background.
I also added a layer of Glossy Accents to my mermaid’s tail, to make it look wet. I had a lot of fun with this sketch, even though it was a bit of a struggle for me at first. I am thrilled with the end result though. Some of the other Bombshell Gals played along with this sketch as well. Here are the links to their blogs.
