I am back today with my 5th post in the Under the sea Card Series, I hope you enjoy this late summer inspiration so far!
Today’s card features the cute mermaid and turtle from the Swimming by stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps. I stamped them with Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I used the coordinating die to cut them out and coloured them with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Pens. I added some sparkle to the tale with a Tonic Aqua shimmer pen.
The background is made on a Bristol Smooth card base using Distress inks (Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch). After I sponged some on the card base lightly I went back with the same colours through a Cascading Scallop stencil (MFT). I distressed it with water and dabbed it with a paper towel to create texture.
The sentiment is white heat embossed on black cardstock an die cut with the coordinating die (I love the look). The other half of the sentiment is stamped with Blue Lagoon ink from Gina K Designs.
I adhered the sentiment an the turtle flat and popped up the mermaid with foam squares. A few clear crystals from Studio Katia finished off this cute card.
I hope you like my card series and will pop in again soon for more summer fun!
