Are you ready for summer and beach? I can't wait for warm and sunny weather. We had small relapse in Estonia. No one wasn't prepared for the snow in May. But it's getting better now... 

As a main image on my card I used new stamp sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle -  digi version of Kaitlyn Mermaid set #847. I used pre-colored image and just added light blue to the background. To add my personal touch I colored the sand with Versamarker pen, covered it with Hit the Beach Embossing Powder and heat embossed. Her tale was done the same way but I used Sparkle EP. Her lips and stump was painted over with watercolor brush and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Peony Pink). Waterfall Glitter was adhered with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to her blouse and hair. Top her hairpiece and bracelet I added Nuvo Glitter Drops (Honey Gold).

It was very fun to make the background. Sentiment is from same Kaitlyn Mermaid digi set. I placed it on top of the blue digi paper from Rainbow of Pastels Patterned Paper Pack and printed it out. Paper is ripped in to strips. Starting from the top I adhered those strips to a scrap paper and after that It is trimmed to the size I needed. I scribbled Versamarker pen over the blue paper and heat embossed it with Sparkle EP.  

I brought out an older stamp set named Mermaid Kisses #529. I used Memento (Tuxedo Black) ink to stamp two different small images with seashells to the white cardstock. They are colored with Promarkers. I also added Nuvo Embellishment Mousse with waterbrush to make them shiny: Peony Pink to the shell and  Mother of Pearl to the pearls. I also added Nuvo Jewel Drops on them: Grey Mist to the pearls and Rose Water to the pink shell. Starfish is covered with Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops

Nuvo Jewel Drops, in color of Sea Breeze, was added all over the card. They looks air bubbles.

To make the matting layer I covered the edges of the carstock with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape, adhered top layer in center and covered rest of the tape with Denim Microfine Glitter.

  1. What a clever way of using the paper, Eret! I was wondering how you achieved the sparkly appearance on strips, and now I know - you tore the pretty paper! GREAT design idea! Why didn't I think of that? (wait! don't answer that LOL) I love your card, Eret. So pretty! xo

  2. Eret - This is so beautiful!! I love this card and how you Incorporated so much more into it. The ripped patterned paper background and the Sparkle EP and the shell clusters from the old set really pull everything together. This is so pretty.


Thank you so much for your comment. It is always so nice to read them. Hugs and smiles. Eret
