Good morning! I was working on a card for the Lawnscaping blog and ended up with three so I’m sharing one over there and two over here! Mermaids everywhere!! 🙂
My first card is quite CAS (I know, I know…almost never happens around here!) 🙂
I had one leftover mermaid from my coloring frenzy and didn’t want to leave her out! So I stamped the sentiment from Lovable Legends with versamark and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. Then I adhered my mermaid and seahorse with foam mounting tape and added a healthy covering of spectrum noir clear sparkle!
Then it was shaker time!
When I first got my mermaid set I stamped a ton of mermaids and sea creatures with versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder onto watercolor paper. Then I spent an afternoon watercoloring them with my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors before cutting them out with my ScanNCut. Most of my sea creatures went to my Lawnscaping card but I did have a few leftover for my shaker! For this card I started by painting the background with distress inks. I used Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon (of course!), and Chipped Sapphire distress inks. I also added flicks of water to create subtle bubbles throughout my background panel. Next I added my mermaids and their pet narwhals and a small herd of colorful seahorses with foam mounting tape. I stamped the sentiment with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I filled my shaker with a mixture of clear sequins, seed beads, and microbeads to create the look of bubbles! The frame for my shaker was cut with a stitched rectangle die and is mounted with a double layer of foam mounting tape to allow the beads to move freely.
And that’s it! Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you’ll head over to the Lawnscaping blog to see my third card!
