The other night, I had a vision for my next card, so I quickly sat down with my supplies and started creating. Having children (and a crazy, needy dog), I had several interruptions before it was completed.
I would like to enter this card into Heart 2 Heart Challenges current challenge "Cut It Out". That mermaid requires a lot of fussy cutting, but she's so pretty and so worth it. I grabbed my sponge and sponged the bottom in Glacier ink, switched it to Lagoon for the middle and finished with our pretty Pansy ink at the top. I really wanted to add stitching around the edges but thought that make this card too fussy. I thought it would be fun to use the scallop embossing folder to mimick mermaid scales, and it's been forever since I really utilized my embossing folders. Before embossing, I did add stamping to the bottom. Way easier than trying to do it after. Oh, and I added some liquid glass to the bubbles (wish I'd colored them in beforehand for added depth). I'm sad that our pretty floral sequins are now sold out, but happy that I bought 1 extra pack before it happened. Whew!
You only have a few days left to participate in this challenge, as well as the other March challenges at Heart 2 Heart.
Hope you like this fun card. It's really bright and vivid in person. And daughter-approved, too. She has been dropping hints that she wants this card for her birthday. LOL
