Hello again! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog hanging with my mermaid friends! I sure do love them! The cuties in this new stamp set are so much fun and I love the different images where the mermaid is peeking out of the water or her fin is all that’s left from diving down. You can build some awesome scenes with these!
For today, I chose one of the sweet mermaids and a couple of friends for her to have too. You know me, I have to add critters whenever possible! I just love them all! I colored these guys with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.
Next, I took a blue panel and used the waves embossing folder on it. To enhance the embossing, I used a blending brush and blue dye ink and lightly blended the whole panel. This really helps the embossing design pop visually.
Originally this was going to be my card front but I loved how it looked behind the images so I switched gears by die cutting it with one of the stitched banner dies. Now I needed a different background panel so I immediately pulled out the new awesome paper pad and started comparing, picking and choosing. I think these fish were too perfect not to use! So I used the largest Layered Rectangle to cut it out and adhered it to a white card base.
Next, I added foam tape to the banner and popped it in place, followed by foam squares and liquid glue to adhere all the images. Last, I stamped a sentiment in blue ink and die cut it with a Large Sentiment banner die. I popped it in place with foam squares and trimmed off the edge.
For finishing touches on this card, I added glossy accents to the open eyes, noses and spots. Then I used unicorn Stickles on the mermaid’s fin and seashells. Last, I used a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the seaweed for a little shimmer on the bottom half of the card too.
