Oceans of Love for Digi Doodle Studios

**(This is my second post for today.  CLICK HERE to view other post or scroll down please.)

Hello again my friends!  I’m back to share this card I made using this adorable image from Digi Doodle Studios:


Isn’t she adorable with her little underwater crab friend?!  This is the Nixie Mermaid digital stamp from the Digi Doodles Studios “Under the Sea” collection.  There have recently been a couple more new ones added to this, so go check out the entire collection of these cuties!  I thought she was so cute and I actually had her colored up before I ended up hurting myself and had to leave.  I finished out the card when I got better.

I have also used some fun digital papers and a sentiment that work well with this particular image.  The pretty pink patterned papers you see in the background come from the Digi Doodle Studios Summer Breeze Card Making Paper collection.  The sentiment came from the Digi Doodle Studios Mermaid Sentiments set.  I printed out the sentiment and cut it out with a ticket die, sponged around the edges with the turquoise ink color and layered it over the same turquoise colored cardstock I’ve used throughout my layout.

The layout idea came from a sketch challenge that I’m entering for below this post.  I have several layer panels including the fun turquoise sparkly paper that I’ve used that was cut with a wave border die and then sponged with some white ink.  I added some pearls to each corner of the image panel, wrapped some white organdy ribbon around the card front base, tied a bow and added a silver bow where I have attached some silver string and a starfish charm to it.  The entire card measures 5.5″ square.


Here’s a closer view of the coloring that I’ve done on this mermaid image.  Mainly colored with Copic markers, but I’ve used a gel pen to color the sprigs next to the flower in her hair and the braclets around her wrists.  I took a glitter brush pen and covered her entire fish body and the bubbles in the water with.  (Of course it looks so shimmery in person!)  I then took some glossy accents and covered the little crabs eyeballs with and then some liquid pearls to dab a dot over the pearl inside the oyster.  This mermaid image panel was popped up with foam tape over the card front.

  4. Hi, Vicki! I’m partial to mermaids, so am always interested in seeing how other crafters utilize them. I especially love your design in the background with the pink and blue tones, sparkles, and the pink in her tail! She is darling, Vicki, and your coloring just makes her extra sweet. Beautiful! hugs, de
