It’s a Mermaid Kind of Day

Here’s an adorable Mermaid card for spring time.  This cute mermaid was designed by Scrapbook Stamp Society artist Sherri Baldy.  The stunning papers are all from Paper Temptress. I also added some gorgeous buttons from Jesse James to add just a little flair.

The navy blue paper in the background is Basis 80 # in Blue.  To look like water I used some wonderful layering of ruche paper, multiple layers on top and bottom;  I used Sky Blue Crepe and colored it by rubbing a Colorbox Chalk inkpad over it to give a darker blue ink.  I chose a wonderful mica cardstock, which matches the color I used when coloring the mermaid, it’s called Emerald.  I used Heavenly White cardstock to print the image on and colored it with Copic markers.

I hope this card inspires you to create something cute today.

Have a fantastic time doing it!

Cheers, Holley
