Myths & Magic, Magical Day, 2018 Occasions Catalog, Children's Card

This card is not quite what I had in my head but this is what came out on paper!! I was working towards a more watery looking background.  I used the "Seaside" embossing folder on some Soft Sky card stock. I dragged the Old Olive pad across the top and in a couple of spots I pressesed harder to get some ink on the non-textured parts.  I did the same with the Bermuda Bay ink pad. I taped that layer to a folded half-sheet of Marina Mist card stock.

I fussy cut the mermaid from the "Myths & Magic" Specialty paper pack.  The bubbly oval was also from that same pack.  I die cut a Bermuda Bay scalloped oval.  The ovals were taped together and the mermaid was set in place using Dimensionals.  I did take my matching, or close to matching markers and rand them along the edges where I cut so no white was showing. I should have done it on the skin, you can see the white.  Especially if you click on the photo, but I know you won't do that to look at my errors!!! LOL

I wound up some linen thread and set it in place on the card front using a glue dot.

I set the oval in place using Dimensionals and I added 3 pearls for bubbles.  It's an okay card, but not what was in my head.  It was fun to make, except for the fussy cutting but I managed to survive it with no cuts or cursing!!! LOL

I may save this card for my granddaughter.  She wants to be a mermaid when she grows up!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
