It is all about the Sparkle

Hello Friends Waleska here, to bring some sparkle to you today with an ocean scene card (my favorites to make) with the beautiful Mermaid from Mermaid Wishes stamp, in my personal opinion you never have too many mermaid cards or stamps… what do you think?



I started with the ocean background with oxide inks and my Blending Buddies in colors Wilted Violet, Bluepring Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron, for the sand I used Vintage photo Oxide Ink.    I splash some water for a more realistic look and also some white and oxide ink splashes.

After my background was done I started coloring  my mermaids with copic markers.  I wanted a lot of sparkle for the mermaid tails to do that I used a very fine glitter.  All I do is add with a fine brush white glue very carefully only on the parts I want the sparkle and I add the fine glitter to it.  I love the look and the best thing is that it stays put.


I did this to three mermaids and colored lots of different ocean elements from the Ocean Reef Builder stamp set and started building the scene.  I tryied to use almost the same color palette for the entire scene for a more harmonic look.


To finish it up I added the beautiful Bubble Blower embellishments that look perfect in all your ocean scenes and cards.  I love the sentiment “Just Keep Swimming” for an encouragement card to someone in need!!!

I hope you feel inspired today with my very sparkly card…

Have a wonderful day friends remember to always “Stay Creative”…
