Starfish Wishes

Happy Weekend! I am back today with an ocean themed card. The main image is Naia the Mermaid from Whimsy Stamps. I had this image colored for a while and never came around making it into a card. So today I was browsing YouTube a bit and came across a video from Vicky where she made an art journal page with an ocean / underwater background.  I cased her technique of the background for my card:

I added some distress stain (dauber bottle) to a white card panel (I used mixed media paper), let it dry and used the Whimsy Waves Stencil to sponge on some waves with distress ink. After all the ink was dry I added some white splatters with picket fence distress paint. Using a white, super fine Sharpie poster pen I drew some bubbles and added 3D glaze to make them stand out more. I then stamped the castle from the Salty Hair clear set with Versamark ink and gold embossed the castle. The sentiment is from the same set as are the seashells and starfish stamps I used. Naia the Mermaid was colored with Copics - see a list of Copics used below.

I've added some Nuvo glitter drops to her tail to mimic scales. Here is a close-up on that:

Skin: E000, 00, 11, 21, 04
Hair: YR04, 07, E09, 18
Green: YG03, 21, 17, 67
Violet: V01, 04, 06, 09
