Sending Mermaid Kisses & Starfish Wishes

Good Sunday morning all! A pretty mermaid card is in order for today I think.  I started with a piece of Ocean Card and used the Moonlit Storm Luna Paste through the Wavy mask (one of my favourites!)  I matted it with silver mirror card and white layers after it dried.  I cut a small Square frame using the Double Stitched Squares and added it with foam to the centre.  I cut a wide flag using the Stitched Flags and seated the Mermaid sentiment on it.  On the left side I used the sitting mermaid from the Mermaid Kisses die set.  I cut her out of both milk card and Seafoam card.  I inked the seafoam lightly with Peacock Feathers and used clear embossing powder  on it to give the body a shiny finish.  I inked the milk card with Tea Dye for her hair and used Antique Linen for the arms and a little bit of Worn Lipstick for her cheeks.  I attached the shiny body to the other mermaid and added her to the side of the frame with foam.  I ran some double sided tape around the edge of a slightly larger piece of Ocean card and glittered it with Ice Blue Polished Silk Glitter.  I added the piece with the mermaid with foam to the centre.  Thee card was completed with white and silver mirror card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi there Sue. I look at this lovely sample and wish I had the confidence to sit and gather all the wonderful things to make a gorgeous background like this, I just know I'd make a right pig's ear of it which is why I shy away from trying masks and stencils, but I do love looking at all the pretty backgrounds you make, and the very pretty mermaid sits beautifully on top of her waves so bright and sparkling. Off to market so I'll send my own wishes hoping whatever you do today makes for a beautiful day xxx

Hi Sue, What an amazing card this morning. All the details you have put into it have made it so interesting and pretty. The background is beautiful too. I think it could be one of those cards where every time you look at, you see another interesting technique that you hadn’t noticed before.

Good morning Sue.
How you keep coming up with these beautiful cards I don't know.
I love this one but know I will only admire from afar as I don't have the confidence to try so many new things any more.
I have never used a mask and may well try that for starters.
Hugs.

Stay safe health and happy hugs June Smith xxx xxx

Hi Sue
I love that background. Well I love the whole thing - the beautiful mermaid is wonderful but that background!
I love the wavy mask as well - probably the one I have used the most from my collection. The Luna paste looks stunning on the ocean card. That mask and your Mermaid Kisses were so obviously made for each other.
For anyone who is apprehensive trying the mask/paste fun and games - give it a go. I was convinced I would make a real mess of it but it’s not as tricky as you think! Then it becomes a bit addictive and you end up with a table (and a floor) covered in all your masked backgrounds drying out! Go on - live dangerously!
Happy Sunday everyone

Lisbeth said...

Morning Sue. Love the background and so I can see why you like it too. There is just enough detail in the stencil to add just the right amount of sparkle. Also I do love the new card colours.

Lovely card and one that is cute enough for a child, yet not so cute that it would be unsuitable for an adult.

Mermaids not my favourite, but can see the appeal - love the wavy mask and the whole concept of the card and how it could be adapted, so it still makes this a gorgeous post.

are lots of people who do. Love that wavy stencil too,

I arrive back home to a smashing array of cards as I look back over the last 11 days and even discover I missed a new die collection launch!
I simply had to make a comment on each post to be in with a chance of winning one. They are all so fabulous!
