Today I am sharing a card using a stamp set called Swimming by to say Hi from Time For Tea Designs.
To make the card I started by stamping the cute mermaid image from the stamp set on to some Xpress it blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I them coloured the image using my Copic markers. I used the coordinating die and ran it through my big shot die cutting machine.
Next I used a piece of white cardstock and selected three colours of Distress Oxide inks, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China and Salty Ocean to blend the background. Once I had done this I used a distress sprayer to spritz some water on to the blended panel and soaked up the excess water with a piece of paper towel. I then took some Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour paint from the starry colors collection, mixed it with some water and flicked it over my background with a paint brush. This added some nice shine.
I then adhered my mermaid to the centre of the card using a tape runner before stamping my sentiments. I took the ‘swimming by’ and ‘to say’ sentiments and stamped them above the mermaid then stamped the ‘Hi’ sentiment below her. I also stamped some fish in the background using Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke.
To complete the card I added a few sequins.
