Fintastic Friend Card
Hello there! Leanne here and I have an under the sea mermaid themed card to share with you today. Whenever I’m struggling to come up with an idea for a new card, I always pull out my favorite stamp sets. All of the Honey Bee mermaid sets are some of my all time favorites and never fail to help me create fun scenes on my cards.
For this card, I started with an A6 card base. I trimmed a panel of Bristol Smooth card stock slightly smaller than A6 size. I used a combination of Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks to create the ink blended background. I stamped and Copic colored images from Swimming By and Under the Sea.
I cut out the all the images and arranged them on the background leaving space next to the mermaid for the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment in dark gray ink right onto the background. This sentiment comes from the Mermaid Song stamp set. Lastly I adhered some Clear Iris sequins scattered around the scene for a little sparkle.
