Hi! I have one more card to show, made with Sparkle N Sprinkle June stamp set. This time I used this beautiful mermaid from Tropical Mermaid Alana Digi set. If you love Mermaids then SNS has many stamps with different Mermaids. Just visit SNS website and type 'mermaid' into the search box and choose your favorite. But back to the newest...
I used pre-colored image from digital set and made two extra copies of the fish - one is made smaller and other is flipped horizontally. After printing them out I used Versamarker Pen to 'recolor' all fishes and mermaid tale. They ware covered with Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat embossed. Sand was heat embossed with Hit the Beach EP, Versamarker Pen was used here too to help the powder to stay in place while heating. For more sparkle, I added some glitter with Sakura Glue Pen. To Alana's tale I added Orange Surprise Glitter, on her hair and seaweed I used Misty Isles Glitter.
Two fishes are fussy cut and adhered with foam tape. Bubbles on the image are covered with Nuvo Jewel Drops (Sea Breeze).
Sentiment is printed and die cut with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One die. While the die cut was still in the die, I outlined the inside of the die using a Sakura Glue Pen. Glue was covered with Misty Isles Glitter. I added Nuvo Glitter Drops (Honey Gold and Orange Soda) to little starfish and seashell.
Tropical Mermaid Alana Digi Stamp set comes with starfish and seashell images. I resized them slightly and printed them all in various sizes. Starfishes are covered Honey Gold and seashells with Orange Soda Nuvo Glitter Drops. They are all fussy cut with scissors. I used Tuxedo Black Memento Dual Marker to hide the white cardstock peeking from the sides.
Frame is cut from textured white cardstock. It is inked with Distress inks (Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Broken China). To add bubbles to the frame I sprinkled some Magic Speckle EP on top and melted it with heat tool from underneath the cardstock.
Image layer is adhered directly to the card base. Frame is adhered with foam tape.
