Magical Mermaid

With this card I have created a scene under the sea with the beautiful stamp set Magical Mermaid from Stampin' Up!®, this is a very easy stamp set to use with a little imagination. I will be doing a tutorial on this card very soon over on my Utube Channel so please subscribe to my channel so when I publish the tutorial you won't miss it. I start with colouring my Mermaid with the Blends Alcohol Markers, then create my background by sponging and then stamping and masking my seaweed and coral on the bottom of the ocean floor. For my sponging I have used Sahara Sand, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party with a touch of Soft Sky.

Paisleys & Posies

I have had this stamp set for some time now and haven't used it till today and I am loving the versaltality of it. It is from Stampin' Up!® and is called Paisleys and Posies. I have used Basic Black for both of my card bases, then used Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo and embossed them with the Petal Burst embossing folder. I have then stamped with my versamark ink pad one of the images and embossed it in Silver Embossing Powder, then I cut the piece of basic black cardstock in 1 inch strips to use on both cards to add some dimension. I then cut out using the Stitched Shapes framelits with the two biggest ovals and using dimensionals for the top layer added my sentiment. I then coloured some of the shapes with the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers and added them to my  card.
