You're Fintastic

Hi bloggers!  I thought I would share this card since we have more underwater dies in the collection now!  I started by cutting a circle frame using the Double Stitched Circles.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise the frame then added the Bubbles Background to it.  I used Golden Mint and Aqua Lagoon on the card before cutting it.  From the Mermaid Kisses die set, I cut the mermaid out of milk card and out of the pixied card.  I hand cut the mermaid tail and added it onto the mermaid cut out of milk card.  I coloured her hair with Scattered Straw Distress ink.  I cut the You're Fintastic in black and glued it above the mermaid.  I added some seaweed and castle below her from the Underwater Accessories die set.  I added a half circle of seashells  to the bottom of the frame from the Can't Wait To Sea You die set.  I used some pearl corners as accents (although these have been discontinued), just thought it needed something in the corners!  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, your mermaid looks very happy to be swimming in her bubbles backed with glitter. Love all the 'extras' like the castle.

Hi Sue and everyone, absolutely stunning but I dont remember the mermaid kisses die set. I will Google later. The bubbles in the background are on my wish list as are some of the shells and plants. I just love to look at all the little details in a card ๐Ÿ˜
