Happy Monday everyone.. I hope you all had a fun weekend. It’s Holly here today and I’ve got a card using “Trishell” from the Greeting Farm‘s new Mermaid line. I love this new line of stamps! There are 3 individual images and a mini set with lots of mermaids and undersea images.
I created the background first by adding some Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet Distress Inks to a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor card stock. Once I had the colors all blended how I wanted them I added some drops of Perfect Pearls Mist. This product is discontinued but you can achieve the same look but added some Perfect Pearls powder to a mini mister filled with water and then use the end of the sprayer to flick drops onto your background. I also added a few drops of water and dabbed them off with a paper towel. Then I die cut the panel using the Dainty Scallop Cover up from MFT. I held all the pieces in place with some Glad Press n Seal and added some foam tape to the back and adhered it to a top folding White card base.
I stamped the image onto some Neenah Solar White card stock and colored it in with Copics. I used Colors similar to the background. I fussy cut the image out and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the tail and pearls in her hair. I die cut a Banner from some White card stock using the Avery Elle Pierced Banner Die set and stamped the sentiment from the “Trishell” set using some VersaFine Onyx ink.
I adhered the Mermaid and the banner to the front of the card with some Foam Tape and then I added some Mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I used the following Copics:
Tail~ BG11, BG13, BG15 & BV13 Hair~Y0000, Y00 & Y02 Skin~ E21, E51 & E50 Shell~E41, E42, E43 & E44 Top~BV00 & BV02 Cheeks~ R20 Pearls~ BV02 & C00
