Michelle Perkett Studio Camille The Mermaid

There's a new Under The Sea challenge today at Michelle Perkett Studio!

For my card I used Michelle's Camille digital image and colored her with Copic markers to match the Papertrey Ink Green Boutique paper pad along with Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist card stock and Via Vellum Leaf Green.  For printing and coloring digital images I use Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.  

Camille is colored with Copic markers G21, G24, G28, BG72, BG0000, E31, E33, E34, YR21, E00, E000, YR000.  I used the oval Spellbinders dies to cut her out.  I also used the "out of the box" technique so her tail didn't get cut off.  The small tag die with "birthday wishes" is also by Spellbinders and the sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder that I thought looked like bubbles on the two Aqua Mist panels and my layout is the  Mojo Monday sketch #88 from May 25, 2009.  As I was putting everything away I noticed my Papertrey Ink envelope liner die and thought it would be the perfect way to use up some of scraps of designer paper from my project.

Challenges:
Michelle Perkett Studio - Under The Sea
Charisma Cardz - Match Master 
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything Goes
