Last week, I got an order of LOTV stamps from the UK. I just love the style and cuteness of these stamps, and found it really hard to limit myself to just two. I already have another 3 on my wish list, but for now, I have 'little mermaid 2' and 'boys - computer fun'.
The mermaid stamp is perfect to do girl birthday cards and Katie Rose has two parties coming up, so I made two cards for her.
This was my first attempt with this stamp, and I copied the colours from the sample on the LOTV website because they were sooooo pretty!
I coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and with a blending pen and TB5, LV2, BT2, BP2, PP1, FS2, FS3, GB8 and GB10. I used liquid pearls (white opal) on top of the bubbles to make them stand out.
I think I will try this with more blues next time and layer it up with blue cardstock and patterned paper.
I also made two of these for kindy to put on their trade table, just for the extra practise in colouring. I am new to colouring and still collecting my pens, so as I get more, I will be able to do more shading, blending and colour matching.
