This lovely mermaid is tenderly holding her dear little mermaid who is carrying her own little mermaid doll. It seemed appropriate to make good use of some of the Copic Fluorescent colors for this under the sea image in objects like the seahorses, fish and coral. I couldn't capture the cool effect of these fluorescent colors using a black light but in person it's really magnificent. This photo shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image . . .
While working with this image, I couldn't help but think of the Highlights magazine and their Hidden Picture page where you had to search through the picture to find items hidden throughout. At first glance, I only saw one dolphin then while coloring it, I found another. I love the face included in the front of the wrecked ship. There may be some items that I've missed as there is so much within this picture to enjoy.
I've layered Bo Bunny's Winter Joy Bundled and Dot with teal, purple and green Bazzill cardstock to create my card. A Fiskars border punch mats my image. A couple of Memory Box Madera Corners and an EK Success corner punch decorate my corners. Several Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles add some bling to my fancy corners. Recollections Mulberry Paper Flowers with a satin ribbon create a nice corner cluster.
This is a photo of my completed card front where I've showcased the beautiful Kathleen and Summer image by Hannah Lynn . . .
