One Of A Kind ~ Week 6 Friday Sketchers Challenge


I really love working with sketches!!! I gives me more time to concentrate on my coloring!!! I just received this little mermaid in my last order and she seemed perfect for this challenge. Again, I used Twinkling H2os on top of my Prismacolor/Gamsol coloring. It gives a soft shimmery effect which unfortunately really doesn't show in the scanned picture. You'll just have to take my word for it...her tail is very shimmery! I put stickles on her wings and used my beloved Nestabilities to cut my circle and scallop shapes. I stamped a few star fish on my top paper and colored those in with H20s as well.
Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia Mermaid & Star Fish, Stampin' Up Sentiment from One of a Kind Set
Paper: SU Blue Bayou, Paper Trey Aqua Mist, DP is from Walmart
Embellies: Prima Flower, SU Brad, PT Aqua Mist Polka Dot Ribbon
Tools: Nestabilities
Enjoy and I always welcome comments!!!

OMG this card is flat-out GORGEOUS!! These are some of my favorite colors, too! Now I *REALLY* want my own Tildas!! I don't know how to order them - in other words, should I buy "unmounted" or "EZ-mounted?" What's the difference? I own just a few acrylic stamps (unmounted) and use acrylic (clear) blocks for those. Are these stamps from Magnolia clear acrylic or are they rubber? I'm thinking I should buy the EZ-mounted, but I'm not sure what they are, exactly. I have been DYING to order lots of stamps from them but I don't wanna invest in the wrong thing. KWIM? If anyone could help me with this, I'd REALLY appreciate it!! Either post here or email me at DrLaurieDELIVERS @ aol.com
Thanks so much for your help!

P.S. I am saving this blog to my faves because I absolutely LOVE your cards!! Your coloring is just AWESOME. :)

beautiful card. Great colors. The mermaid is so beautiful coloured!! I use the h2o's also for those kind of things, it is a shame they don't show on the pictures..... Great details, everything goes so well together. I am happy you loved working with the sketch, it was my first one ever ;-)
