I apologize for making another easel card for the Reveal Day. I love making them and I won't give any promises that next month I'll make something different. Revealing a new stamp set is a special event and it deserves a special card, which easel cards are for me. Hope you like it.

 I used Mermaid Kisses stamp set on my card. This pretty Mermaid is colored with Promarkers and I added some Lavender Iris Glitter to her body and Waterfall Glitter to the water. I added dark green fuzzy yarn below the image layer and light green pearl string to frame the Mermaid image. All flowers are "colored" with embossing powders. Flowers are not so blue as they appear on the photo. Below is a picture with flower in more true color. Flourishes are covered with Spring Willow EP.

Stamping is done with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added three more little stars around the sentiment layer. For that I inked only a star from 'Belive' stamp. Once again I used Promarkers to color the images. I added some glue with Sakura Glue Pen to the stars and applied Daisy  Glitter on top. Bigger pearls are covered with Glossy accents and small pearls are made with Pearl Pen.  

I wish you can see the background layer of this card. I think it's amazing. First I inked the paper with Versamark ink. Covered it with BlueSilver EP, sprinkled some Wisteria EP hear and there and heat embossed. Then I took a cap of pen and used it as a stamp to make some circles with VersaMark ink. These circles was heat embossed with Skylight EP. Embossed layer is matted on op of the layer which is covered with Black SuedeVelvet Glitter.

On picture below you can see the true color of the flowers. Flowers are covered with several embossing powders. First I inked them up with Versamark ink, then tipped the ends of the flower petals in to the Wisteria EP and covered rest of the flower with Amethyst Spray EP, and heated with heat gun. Then I used a Versamarker Pen to scribble some ink to the center of petals and heat embossed with Blueberry EP. Flower centers are heat embossed with Dandy Dandelion EP.

 You can find full directions how to make this card is here.
