Encouragement Cards, Feel Good Cards, Just Because Cards

You Are Mermazing


Hello there!  I hope your week is getting off to a good start!

Today’s card is for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #380.  A few days ago I pulled out some alcohol ink backgrounds that I made in late February and when I saw this weeks challenge I thought of a fishbowl and remembered that I had a blue and green background that I could use.

I started by trimming a panel of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock using the largest die from the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle die set.  Then I cut out the circle using the second-larged die from the My Favorite Things Inside & Out Stitched Circle die set.  I added a little bit of ink splatter using Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks, and then I trimmed the alcohol ink background and adhered it behind the circular window.

Then I stamped and colored one of the mermaids from the My Favorite Things Mermazing stamp set.  I used Neenah Solar White, and just did some simple Copic-marker blending.  I used E57 and E59 for her hair, E50 and E53 for her skin, R20 for her cheeks, YR15 and YR68 for the starfish, and BG11, BG45, and BG49 for her top and tail.  Then I cut her out using a Brother ScanNCut2.  I added sparkle to her top and tail using clear Wink of Stella.

For the sentiment, I prepped a piece black Recollections cardstock with an anti-static powder tool and then I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink.  I sprinkled Hero Arts white embossing powder over it, tapped off the excess, and then hit it with my heat gun.

I used liquid adhesive to adhere the sentiment onto the card front, and then popped up the mermaid with foam tape.  Then I adhered the entire card front to an A2-sized card base to finish.

Thanks for visiting!
