Hi there, my second post of the day and there will be another one in a little while too :-)
This is my DT card for PanPastel UK where our theme this week is 'Use a digi'. I've used this beautiful mermaid image from Crafts and Me called 'Resting on the horizon' for my card.
I printed the image and masked the mermaid with Eclipse masking tape before adding the background with PanPastels. I used white. ultramarine blue and the tint to create the sky and then used a pencil eraser to rub out a cloud shape. To give the cloud a bit of dimension I added some paynes grey panpastel and a tiny bit of yellow and magenta pans and again blended with white. I used some torn copier paper for a mask and added the hills using yellow green shade panpastel and then added the beach by blending browns and yellows. Lastly I added the sea using blues and turquoise pans, creating the waves with a pencil eraser and a bit of glamour dust. While the image was still masked off I used an Indigo Blue stamp to add the grasses with distress inks and drew in a few darker grasses with coloursoft pencils. I fixed the background with hairspray before removing the mask and colouring the image with promarkers.
