Mer Ian & a Digi Relay

The Greeting Farm is doing a digi relay this week. Just after midnight on Sunday, they posted a free digi of Mer Ian on their blog. If you make a card with him and post it to the appropriate gallery on their site by 6 PM CST today, you will get the next digi. This process repeats for the week. I’m not sure how far I will get in the relay, but at least I got the first step done.

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with Mer Ian (or as my daughter calls him, “Mermaid boy”), but as I was blurfing today, I came upon a great challenge on The Res-q Challenge blog. The challenge was to make a salted background, which I had never heard of, but found the tutorial straight forward and pretty easy.

For my salted background, I used Soft Sky, Cool Caribbean and Bermuda Bay reinkers. I didn’t get any pictures as I was doing this, but this is so cool for sea life stamps, I can totally see myself doing it again. I dried my paper with my heating tool and set it aside.

Mer Ian is colored with Copics. I definitely need a few more BG colors. I used BG01 and BG23 for his tail. After coloring his hair with YR20, I decided to blend in a bit of BG23 for a fun look. I chose Bermuda Bay and Cool Caribbean as my colors and my layout comes from the Our Creative Corner sketch challenge this week. I think he turned out quite cute.

  1. Terrific job! I have read of this technique, but never tried it. It looks fabulous on your card. I love the way you used the debossed side of the embossing – it really looks like bubbles. Great job on the sketch challenge. So happy you were able to join in the fun with the OCC this week.
