Hello and good morning!
I am back again today with another gorgeous mermaid from Whimsy Stamp’s July new release collection. This little mermaid with her super fun little fish balloons is beyond adorable!! She is one of the adorable mermaids in the Mermaid Birthday Clear Stamp Set. I couldn’t resist…I had to color my very first pink hair…lol
I stamped this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card, colored her with the following Copic Sketch Markers, and fussy cut her out.
Fish: YR15/Y35/Y11-000, YG25/03/01/00, V04/01/00, Lips: RV55
I started with a 4″ square white card base, added a white layer that was 3 7/8″ square, and a pink layer that was 3 3/4″ square.
For the inside piece of the shaker element, I inked up a piece of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, added the Shellebrate sentiment from the same stamp set, and cut it into a circle.
To create the outside circle frame, I taped two of the circle dies together with purple tape; and then while they were taped together, I cut the frame out of the starfish print paper. I then cut two more of the circle frames out of white craft foam. I cut one plain circle shape of clear acetate. I taped the clear acetate to the back of the starfish frame with Scor-Tape 1/4 inch. I used the same tape to adhere the two layers of foam tape to the back of the same piece. Once I had the shaker bits in the center of the blue sentiment circle, (keeping still so I didn’t lose any of the pretties), I then taped it down to the actual card.
The paper is from Echo Park- Let’s Be Mermaids.
