Today I have a card from you that is inspired from two challenges; a sketch at the Paper Players and a color challenge over at Color Throwdown.
Love the sketch, its simple and oh my goodness, those colors are so pretty! Here is my card:
I did an awful lot here and I had so much fun doing it. The mermaid is from the stamp set Magical Mermaid and she is stamped on vellum with Stazon and colored with Stampin' Write Markers. I used Mint Macaron, Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo. Then for the tri-colored background I used the Bokeh Dots stamp set and got out my Stampuratus. I used the hinge method where you ink up your stamp, stamp, clean, re-ink then move the plate down. Its SO easy! I used Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather. Its a mermaid so I had to used some silver glimmer paper underneath, The card base is Balmy Blue with a layer embossed with the High Seas embossing folder. I dug up the sentiment from a retired stamp set, because it was so perfect. I finished it off with some sequins and a coral vellum piece from the most recent Paper Pumpkin. Here is the inside:
I just used the mermaid silhouette and the sentiment from Magical Mermaid to finish off my encouraging card.
