Oceanna: Copic Coloring

Hello Crafters! 

For today's post I'm working with the new Oceanna stamp. It's part of the April release and I think she's just beautiful! 
I'm always drawn to Mi Ran's stamps. Which stamps do you gravitate toward? 

I started by stamping the beautiful mermaid in Copic safe ink. 
I used distress ink to lay down a base color for both the water and the sand. This cut down on how much copic ink I had to put down to build my background scene. 

I used my copics to create some wavy lines to add a few details as well as the base coloring. This is something I'm still practicing as I usually prefer to add details with my white gel pen. I added some bubbles into the water and then highlighted them with a sparkle pen. 

While I was priming my sparkle pen I was a little over zealous and a *huge* drop fell onto my background. No worries, a few rocks covered it right up. haha! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
If there's something you'd like to see in the future please let me know :) 



  1. A beautiful card Kelly. You did a good job covering up the drop of sparkle, I can't see it! LOL
    A great idea to use Distress as a base before Copic colouring!

  2. Beautiful work of art. Love the vibrant colors.
