Hello there! Today I’m sharing a card I made for Lawnscaping challenge with my new stamp set from Lawn Fawn, “Mermaid For You”.
Here is my card:
The first thing I did was stamped the rock from the stamp set 2x on the masking paper and cut it out. I used that to create a bigger rock for the mermaid and the merman to sit on. Any missing lines I drew it in with my Momento dual marker that is copic friendly.
Then I took the Lawn Fawn Largest stitch die and and used my sizzix big shot to cut out 2 panels of Bristol paper. Originally I had the idea to the card horizontally so that I can have more room. I was going to use other sea animals looking up and out of the water surrounding the rock. But I changed my mind and did it vertically to keep the focus on the two main characters.
I took one of the panels and cut out 2 waves using lawn fawn stitched hillside border.
Then I went back to my masking paper and cut out a circle to do some distress ink blending to create the sun and the background.
Next I worked on ink blending the waves and spritzed it with some water after. When dried I added the sentiment on the bottom layer of the wave.
I decided to add some stars to the background so I used embossing pen and drew the stars in, added pearl embossing powder and set it with my heat gun. This was where I made my biggest mistake, I mistook pearl for white so I had to use my white gelly pen to go over it. Lastly I colored in the characters with copic markers and gave them black and red hair because I thought it would pop against the yellow background. I added glitter and wink of stella to finish it off. The best part of making this card was seeing my vision come to life. I think that is the most rewarding part of card making for me.
Thank you so much for visiting!!!
