Hi, There!

Okay, so I made more than one of these mermaids and just wanted to apply it to one more card.  This time I made it into a shaker card using the beautiful frame die cut from Hero Arts May month kit called Reef Border. The mermaid image is from Stampendous also die cut. 

I used two backgrounds before I applied her.  One is my sparkle paper from Recollections, and the other that was applied over that one is from the same Hero Arts May set which was a white swirl tissue.   I used some sequins from this kit and added some from 28 Lilac Lane Seaside.  I used Distress Oxide Ink to shade around the frame and added one die cut fish from Stampendous.  The sentiment is from the same kit.  Thanks for stopping by and hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Image has been colored with Copic Markers.  Frame mounted with lots of foam tape for dimension.

Hi, There!

Okay, not wanting to be boring but here is another under the sea image.  I just love mermaids and I can paint them all day if I didn't end up boring myself!!!  LOL

Picked this image up from Michaels during a sale and it is a Stampendous stamp and die cut set.  I really like the images in this stamp set.  Also, I love how they give you coloring examples on the back of the packaging.  So here it is without further ado.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day, hugs CaroleAnn

Card Recipe:
Stampendous Stamp Set and Dies.  The background was done with Distress Oxide Inks, added some Shimmer Spray and water splatters.  Sentiment from the same set and embossed with Versa Fine Majestic Blue.  Fish have been glued to the background but the mermaid has been added with 3D foam tape.  Lots of Wink of Stella on all the sea creatures and Stickles Stardust on her crown and crystal ball.  Mounted the whole card scene onto a blue glitter paper from Michaels and then onto a white card base.  There is another turtle inside the card - I always add something inside my cards to match the front.
