Be Mermazing

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Friday!  The weekend is here and my Fri-YAY card features a Mermaid, Alcohol Marker Coloring and Ink Blending.

To start my card, I stamped, colored and fussy cut images from the Not 2 Shabby's Be Mermazing Stamp Set.  I masked off a section of card and ink blended Catherine Pooler Inks to create an organic block of color, then spritzed water to create "bubbles".  I added white dots to the Mermaid using a white Gelli Roll Pen, then adhered the images, popping the Mermaid on foam pads for dimension.  Lastly stamped the sentiment and added sequins for shine.

Have a great Friday!  Until next time, Happy Crafting.

  1. She is mermazing. A beautifully colored card.

    My earlier make was a money holder. It had a little belly band on it with a tiny tag.

    We've been getting some rain and we'll take all we can get right now. It's hot but it's not Death Valley hot yet. [Bunny]
