OSAT Blog Hop Something Old Something New
For this card, you’ll use the Magical Mermaid stamp set,
Seasonal Layers Dies and Under the Sea Dies.
These are my “something old”.
Begin with a Balmy Blue card base.
Stamp the mermaid in Versamark and heat emboss in gold
on Whisper White.
Then, use your Blender Pen to add
Pretty Peacock (something new) and Granny Apple Green ink
to the tail.
Next, fussy cut just the tail portion of the mermaid.
Die cut two pieces of Vellum with a Seasonal Layers die.
With your Blender Pen draw with Versamark Refill
along the top of the waves.
Add a rough sprinkling of white Stampin’ Emboss Powder
to create texture.
Lightly color the Vellum and wave tops with
Light and Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends.
With Light Soft Suede and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends,
Using dies from Under the Sea,
cut coral from Pretty Peacock and Calypso Coral cardstock
and a sand dollar from Silver Glimmer Paper.
Accent with a Sail Away Trinket.
Create an ink smoosh background
with Pool Party and Balmy Blue ink.
Tip: I use the plastic overlay from a stamp case that I repurposed. After smooshing each ink pad onto one half of the plastic, spritz with water. Then press the two halves of the plastic together to distribute and lightly mix the inks. When satisfied, lay a piece of Whisper White or Fluid 100 in the ink. Remove before paper becomes wet through. Use heat tool to speed drying.
Then, add the masked sentiment from Magical Mermaid
in Basic Gray.
Tip: I use washi for masking and set the stamp up on the Stamparatus® in case I need to stamp a second time.
After layer all the pieces together,
add a little bling with a few scattered Rhinestones.
