Crazy hair and corny sentiments...

Well I finally got around to making a card for the current Mad for Markers Challenge which is Crazy hair colour.  I had a bit of trouble with this (being the squary that I am) as I couldn't quite bring myself to 'ruin' a lovely image by giving it crazy coloured hair.  I finally settled on using the Mer Ian digi from The Greeting Farm ('cause it's okay for mermaids and mermen to have blue hair right?).
I also decided to use this card to enter the current Creative CAS challenge for Corny sentiments... This is actually the second card I have made for this challenge as after I finished the first one I realised it might not be clean and simple enough!

I coloured Ian's hair with one copic marker... B000. I just flicked up from the ends leaving white space in the middle for highlights.  Then I added Stickles for some sparkle.

The sentiment is from Amy R Summer Sentiments (I think) and I purchased them from Funky Kits.  The papers are from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon.  The ribbon is from Blooming Felt.

I used the following copics to colour Ian...

Have a lovely week!

Oh, I thought this was a post about crazy hair...which I identified with! I do think the little merman looks sharp. Very ethereal.
