Steampunk mermiad-Challenge #69@TSC


Hi everyone! Happy Canada Day!
Today I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.
Challenge #69
This weeks theme is Summer Fun!
I've chosen this Mermaid Steampunk from our sponsor Delicious Doodles.
I've been waiting for weeks to use this image. Two of my favorite things Mermaids, and Steampunk. Together they are fabulous!
It took a while for me to decide what colors to many possibilities.  I masked the mermaid and used spray inks to color the background sky and water.
I've added a teeny tiny metal watch gear onto the gear on her tail but it didn't really show up well in the photographs. There's a lot more color contrast on the tail than what I could capture with the camera and light that I had.
I may have gotten a little wild with the Fran-tage, because it almost covered up the metal corner piece that I altered with gold ink and a sand dollar charm
The chipboard gears are from Make It Crafty, and the paper is from Prima Art Journal.
Thanks for visiting, and join us this week with your Summer fun creations.

Debora...your steampunk mermaid is beautiful. I love the image and you've given her such "life" through your coloring. I also love the little metal gears you've added to the corners and the black flourish die cuts. Lovely design. Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
