I started by applying Broken China ink to the background and the frame using a wet baby wipe. I like the look the baby wipe gives. I stamped the underwater foliage using Peeled Paint ink. I heat set both the background and frame., applied Cosmic glitter glue with my finger to totally cover both and sprinkled with clear glitter glue. Next I stamped the mermaid image on the die cut and then lightly washed with a water pen. I heat set the ink, applied glue and sprinkled with glitter. The small shells were colored using a bit of Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey to create a coral appearance. I applied glue and glitter to them top make them sparkle like the whole image.The sentiment was stamped on vellum and embossed with gold embossing powder.
I began assembling the card by attaching the blue background layer to the card base using ATG adhesive. I attached strip of mounting tape to the back of the frame, attached the sentiment strip to the mounting tape and then attached the whole thing to the card base. I tucked the Mermaid’s Tail under the frame and attached with mounting tape. The tiny shells were attached with rolled up glue dots.. I finished by adding a few sparkling clear sequins.
The sentiments in this set are so cut and match perfectly with the whimsical Mermaid’s Tail. I appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great weekend.
