I had a great time coloring him. Since he is a mythical beast, you can really play with the colors. Here is I used:
- W2, W3, W5, B04
The background was a turquoise dye ink, blended into a piece of watercolor paper, then spritzed with Pearlized water and allowed to drip down the panel and dried with a heat tool. Then spattered with water.
The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, then clear heat embossed.
And a bunch of fish were stamped in the same turquoise ink, then a Clear Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen over top to a little shine and dimension.
And the punch line on the inside! I had to scatter fish and ships all around it.
The fish are stamped with the same turquoise ink, then a blender pen is used to color them in. I went over them with the same Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen in clear.
For a little set, this one really is loaded with goodness! I love the "I am a sucker for you" pun with the tentacles!!
When I started this tag, I was going to color each individual tentacle. But changed my mind when I was sponging the cardstock for the heart. This still looks awesome, but took a fraction of the time. Plus, there is no bleed through like there would have been with Copics.
The sentiment is Brass heat embossed on the sponged and spritzed cardstock. It is easier to see in real life, but not much. Maybe white would have been better. What do you think?
So, are we ready to make this set fly off the shelves? I know I am glad it is in my stash!
