Sending Mermaid Kisses

Hello there my crafty friends!  It's time for more mermaids!  I started this one by using the Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Oxides and swiping them across a piece of white card.  I spritzed it with water then embossed it with the Bubble Burst embossing folder for texture.  I used the Stitched Hills and Cloud die to cut the ocean floor out of milk card.  From the Mermaid Kisses set,  I cut two mermaids, one out of milk card and one out of Ocean card.  I added Peacock colour from the Holographic Sparkle Shakers  to the body of the ocean card mermaid, then nipped away just the mermaid body.  I coloured in the hair with Tea Dye ink and added some cheeks with Worn Lipstick to the milk card mermaid and then glued the sparkly body on to it.  I seated her on the left side of the ocean floor holding a small seashell.  I cut a wide strip of white card and added a thin ocean mat and glued it to the top of the card.  I cut the sentiment out of ocean card and glued it to the strip.  I added a small piece of seagrass and a couple of seahorses next to it.  I cut more sea grass out of an assortment of green card from my stash and glued them along the floor with seashells.  I cut three small fish and inked them with Spiced Marmalade and glued them to the card.  The card was completed with white and Ocean mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, such a sweet card, love the Mermaid and the bubble background, I do have both the embossing folder and the dies. Love Jean xxx

Morning Sue. Although your little mermaid steels the show and we know how much you love her, the very clever bubble folder design helps create the full story (as does the wavy stencil) the texture is made for these underwater collections you designed and it all comes together beautifully but I still think she needs a manetee to hold hands with lol. I bet you've never done so many 'happy dances' as you have after every cute sweet mermaid sample has been given the Sue magic dust treatment to bring her to life, so keep enjoying her, keep 'happy dancing' and have a great day xxx

Good Morning Sue and all
WOW WOW WOW what a fantastic card this morning , all the details on this card are amazing. The Bubble burst embossing folder works so well on this card and I have to say the details on the mermaid tail from shimmer shakers is brilliant. I love seeing your mermaid cards.
Crafty hugs to all, Wendy

Hi Sue
This is a work of art. A tranquil scene which would not look out of place in a frame. Your mermaids portray such a serenity - how is that possible on a card? The background is perfect - spritz then emboss - must try that! Thank you for sharing this beauty x
There is a blanket of frost covering our back garden - oh come on - it’s April!
Happy Friday everyone

Hello Sue,

Your mermaid cards have all been fabulous and this one is no exception. They just make me happy whenever I see one. The detail is incredible. To have the imagination to bring this to life is mind blowing. You are truly blessed with an incredible talent and we are all blessed that you share it with all of us. Thank you for that.

Have a wonderful Friday.

Good Morning Sue. What a lovely scene. It's like an under water scene in the Man From Atlantis... anyone remember that one...Patrick Duffy?...well maybe me showing my age. But your lovely little mermaid looks fantastic sitting in her underwater garden. It's beautiful Sue. Thankyou. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

I was not into the mermaid craze until I saw your collection. I couldn't get it at the launch because I spent all my $ on Triple Layer dies(no regrets there) but now that they are available in the states, I have ordered the 2 sets and can't wait until they come next week. I love all the cards you have made with them. My sister will love them too (turtle especially). Next time she visits I am sure we will be making beach and under water scenes.
Thank you for your talents!
