Today, I am posting a card for our weekly challenge over at Queen of My Craftroom. Our challenge this week was to create a card using a stamped image that is colored. We weren't allowed to use any die-cutting machines (Cricut, Big Shot, Vagabond, etc.) Not so easy, that's for sure. Hehe :) I used 3 of my favorite products: MFT stamps, I Am Roses flowers, and LSG Magical Micas. The card is 5.5 x 5.5.
The papers I used are from the Perfect Day collection by CTMH. I edged all the papers with TH Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. The adorable mermaid stamp is by My Favorite Things - "Who's That Mermaid?" I colored the stamp up with my Copic markers and here are the different combos I used.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21
Sand: E30, E31, E33, E34
Water: BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18
Sky: B000, B00, B01, Colorless Blender
Fin: BG72, BG75
I colored the mermaid's fin with my Copic markers and then used my LSG Magical Micas in Tainted Love Teal. Isn't the shimmer gorgeous?
I used some aqua satin pleated trim by Maya Road and then topped it with some flat back pearls that I had in my stash. I combined a bunch of flowers from I Am Roses and used some starfish like you would leaves. I just love how cute this is. The large teal flower was originally white, but I used my LSG magical micas to color this up too! I also nestled in some pearl accents to fill in the gaps.
The sentiment is from the "Who's That Mermaid?" stamp set.
Here's a peek at the inside. Hope you liked today's project and that your day is filled with Love & Whimsy! :)
