SOSS #140 - S is for Sea

The new Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge is here:  #140 S is for Sea!

I stamped the MFT Mermazing gals with Versafine Onyx Black onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. I then colored them with Zig Real Brush Watercolor Pens 022, 082, 072, 081, 222, and 052.

I masked them using Inkadinkado Masking Paper and then used my Copic airbrush and Copic B45 and B49 for seawater.  I spattered that with alcohol blending solution; notice how the watercolor wasn't affected?  Sweet. I also added a scale details using Copic YR07 and RV09.

I wanted to create a nauti (yeah, I went there) vignette using the Memory Box Graceful Branch Oval, turned on its side to look like seaweed, and Taylored Expressions Build a Scene Underwater dies. I cut out a variety and colored them with Distress Oxides.  They are adhered to the card using Gina K Connect Glue.  Now those gals have all the privacy they need!  Shh. They might catch us peeking!

The card is finished off with a sentiment from Hero Arts Beach Messages and a tiny Memory Box Cheerful Crab cut out of a leftover.


  1. Just love your card, Toni! Jo x
