Video Tutorial and Card Maker Blog Hop: Craftin Desert Divas, Copic Marker Coloring, and Water Coloring a Fun Background on your Card

Hello everyone and welcome to our Summer Blog Hop!!  We are so excited to be creating some Summer projects along with the Card Maker Magazine team. Be sure you hop along and leave a comment on each blog along the way for a chance to win a $75 CDD shop credit. We will be choosing from all the comments left on all of the team's blog posts, so the more you... comment, the more chance to win! The winner will be announced 7/19.


Today I've created a fun card using the brand new stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas called Mermaid Lagoon.  This is one of my most favorite stamp sets of all time I think :)  I just love it!  I created a video tutorial sharing how I colored my mermaid with copic markers and I also share how I created the fun watercolor background on my card.  Here's my video:




And here are some pictures:








I used the following copic colors on my mermaid: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, E23, E25, E29, Y35, Y38, E18, YR04, YR07, YR09, RV10, R81, R83, R85, R89.  I used my Gansai Tambi watercolor paints to create the fun background.  The sentiment also comes from a brand new stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas called Summer Vibin', which is also a super cute set.  To finish the card off, I added some sequins from Studio Katia and some Baker's Twine from my stash.  What do you think?

To continue on the hop, please head over to Teresa's Blog.  Don't forget to leave comments along the way for your chance to win a $75 gift certificate to Craftin' Desert Divas!  Thanks so much as always for stopping by!
