Make a Splash...

TGIF my friends!

Well here we are at the third and final day of April previews for The Greeting Farm and we've got a great new set called Make a Splash that is perfect for the coming summer months. The set comes with two little mermaids and two mermen, a castle and treasure chest, as well as this dolphin, some fish and seaweed... everything you need to create a variety of under the sea scenes. For my first card I wanted to pair a couple of the mers with the dolphin and create an energetic scene of them leaping in and out of the water. All I had to do was wipe the ink away from the bottom half of the merman and dolphin leaping out and the top half of the dolphin diving back in. Then I colored the water up around them, leaving some white showing to create the splashing and illusion of motion. Once the scene was all colored I also added some white ink with my finger tip to bump up the foamy look. It was a fun challenge to tackle and I really love how it turned out. :)

Alrighty, you know what to do...  head on over to the TGF blog for even more Make a Splash cuteness from the Farmers. And don't forget that the entire release will be available for purchase on the 15th!  :)
