The word of the day is "new". Because there are several new things I used on this card.
First of all, I was so excited to receive the new Lucy's Crab Shack pad from Bazzill Basics that I went in search of a stamp to use it with immediately. Scrapbookers will probably remember Sweetwater which was a favorite of mine back
in the day. The company transitioned over to fabric designing and left
the paper world behind. Until now that is - in partnership with Bazzill. The mermaid image in the Market Street Dreaming of the Sea stamp set had not seen any ink so I paired her with this fab paper. It's a fairly new stamp set as well.
The third new item you will note is that I am trying out the Spectrum Noir markers. I still love my Copics and will probably never give them up especially since I have heavily invested in them. I have never paid full price for a Copic marker or refill bottle but even at an average of $5 for the maker and another $6 for the refill, that is a $11 investment in just one color. It has become really hard for me to justify that kind of money. So I am sticking my toe in the Spectrum Noir world. And I am not even sure it's a full toe since as of right now I only have one of the 6 pack basics (pinks). We shall see.
So on to the details of this card. I stamped the mermaid and the fishes onto Copics X-Press It cardstock and then cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities allowing one of the tail fins to fall out of the box. I colored the images with mostly Copic markers and a bit with Spectrum Noirs. The flower was cut with the My Favorite Things Prima Donna Petals Die-namics. The C.C. Designs sentiment was stamped directly onto the background panel with Ranger Archival ink and I added some jewels to finish it up.
