Let's Be Mermaids


I've got my favorite kind of shaker card today, one with a mermaid and sand and shells! ♥

This was the first time I got around to inking this adorable mermaid and her background up and I love it so much! I stamped her and her background on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored her, the seaweed, and the sand with Copic markers.

 Next I masked her and the sand and seaweed off with some detailed fussy cutting to make the ocean background with distress inks and ink blending.

 Then I splattered some water over the background to make the bubbly effect and peeled off the masking paper!
 I added some wink of stella shimmer to her tail and die cut her with a large circle die.
I die cut my card base and my clear cardstock out of the large circle die and then used it and a smaller die to make my frame and my foam pieces to assemble the shaker. I stamped the sentiment in StazOn ink on the clear cardstock and then assembled all of the layers together with some sand, shells, and iridescent heart sequins for the filler. So much fun! (as usual I over-filled and had to rip it all apart to take out 2/3 of my sand and stuff and then reassemble 😐)

I fell a little behind in my schedule last night from watching the SOTU (😝) so I'm just listing the supplies instead of linking them up today!

Have a great day!
