I was very excited when Irina asked me to be a guest designer for La-La Land Crafts this month.  I will be participating in their Inspiration Friday challenges. Today’s challenge was to incorporate tearing. I am not a big fan of tearing, but I thought torn paper could make some great waves for this darling Mermaid Marcie.

I stamped Marcie in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on X-Press It! Blending card, colored her with Copic Markers (Hair: E08, E09, E19    Skin: E000, E01, E11     Lips: R21, R22      Tail: G12, G14    Vest: Y13, Y15, Y17, YR12, YR15, YR18) and cut her out.

Neenah Solar White cardstock strips were torn and cut with a small Petite Oval Nestabilities die and airbrushed first with Copic Marker G00, then with B12. Another piece of Solar White was cut with the same die. Some Cloud masks (cut with the Cloud Die-namic die) were adhered to the oval and the oval was airbrushed with Copic Marker B12 to create the sky. The waves were adhered to the sky and Marcie was adhered between them. Diamond Stickles were added to the waves to add some sparkle.

A 4 1/4″ strip of Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with a Floral Doily Accent die before it was adhered to a 1 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ strip of Echo Park Splash patterned paper. Seafoam Organdy Ribbon was tied around the layers were before they were adhered to the card base.

The sentiment is from Kimmie’s Mermaid sentiments. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with the smallest Petite Oval Nestabilities die and airbrushed with Copic Marker YR15.

The top corners were rounded with the corner chomper (LOVE that tool!!!) and the upper part of the card edge were paper pierced. Baby Bling Rhinestones from Want2Scrap finish off the card.

Now you all know how much I LOVE my Copics. If you don’t have any yet, or not that many, head on over to the La-La Land Crafts blog. Irina is celebrating the first birthday of Marcie and Luka with a contest where you can win a 36 set of Copic Sketch Markers.

All you have to do is create a birthday card with either a Marci or Luka stamp, upload the card and add a link to the La-La Land Craft blog post. You have until the end of the month to do so. And if you don’t have any Marcie stamps….it might be the perfect time to purchase one. They are a blast to color.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
