What York Tee Says: I was inspired by the colors and the setting in the inspiration photo. I thought of something cool like swimming in the pool or diving in the sea. I used the Little Mermaids Stamp Set to create an under the sea scene. I started with stamping. Then, I colored the Mermaid and Oyster with Pearl with Chameleon Pen. For the rest of the images, I used sponge daubers to blend the colors using our newly release COLOR STORY premium dye ink pads. After coloring, I used matching dies to cut everything out. Once done, I arranged and adhered them to the card base. The mermaid was popped up with foam squares. Then, I stamped the sentiments. Lastly, I sponged some blue dye ink and stamped the water bubbles. Tada!

What Channin Says: I was so excited about the color palette for this month’s challenge! My mind instantly went to the beach and with my new Little Mermaids set I could hardly wait to create an ocean scene. I first copic colored and fussy cut all my images. I only have a small collection of copics so I had to stamp some of my images on colored cardstock then color them to create colors similar to this photo’s palette. I then blended Daydreaming ink on a 5” x 7” panel of white card stock and then stamped and embossed the sentiment. Next, I cut two strips of white card stock, mounted them on craft foam, and them adhered them to my panel. Lastly, I added foam tape to the starfish and mermaids then adhered them and the fish to the panel.
