Magical birthday – Under the sea Card Series #8

Hello Everyone,

I am back with a magical birthday card today featuring Clearly Besotted stamps and dies. This is the 8th post in my Under the sea Card series. As August is ending I think it is time to switch to Fall themed cards, so I decided to have only one last post tomorrow (celebrating the month of Stamptember). I had many more stamps, dies, stencils, ideas to make, but the time was too short. At least I will save them for next year šŸ™‚

So for today’s card I stamped, coloured and die cut the beyond cute images from Clearly Besotted Fairy tale mermaid an Make a splash sets. I used Copic markers and a black glaze pen to emphasize the eyes and a white gel pen to add some details.

For the background I masked off a strip using Purple tape on a top folding white note card. I sponged the sun first using the Sunscape stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs and Mustard seed and Wild honey distress inks. Then I applied Tumbled glass for the sky. I moved the mask and sponged the sea with Salty ocean distress ink. I used a mini die from the MFT Otterly love you die set to cut a slot for my dolphin.

I also die cut a white strip of cardstock using a pretty border die from Poppy Stamps. I felt it matched the scene so well. I stamped the sentiment in black and arranged the images on the scene. I adhered everything flat except for the mermaid, I popped her up with a thin foam tape (Simon Says Stamp).

As a finishing touch I added Sprinkles to the tale and some glossy accent to the starfish and the bra. I also covered the sun with a layer of clear shimmer using my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen.

I hope you like today’s inspiration and that you will check back for the last post in this series.

Till then happy crafting,

Zsofi
