I’m actually on my way to the beach today for a short “babymoon”, but thought I’d stop by with a quick card project (coincidentally, very beachy…) made using some soon-to-be-released stamps from a Pink & Main set called “Mermaids”. I loved all of the little graphic elements in this set, so I decided to forgo the coloring this week and just have fun stamping out this pretty and sparkly panel.
After stamping the coral, seaweed, and shell images in Versamark ink on some Neenah Solar White cardstock, I melted pearl embossing powder (Recollections) on top. Then, I blended Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks over the embossed images and adhered this panel onto some DCWV glimmer paper before attaching it to my black card front.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is heat embossed in silver…I really wanted to use my Zing silver glitter embossing powder to match my glittery mat, but it just made the sentiment slightly illegible and I figured that the silver matched closely enough anyway. To finish off the card, I added a few adhesive pearls (bubbles) that I colored with an IB3 Spectrum Noir marker to match the Mermaid Lagoon ink in my panel.
I hope you enjoyed this card project and I would love to hear your comments!
