Sea Treasure In The Simple Things

Hello and welcome back!

SSS S182

This is my second mermaid card created with Simon Says Stamp Card Kit 🙂

I am really enjoying playing with these mermaids and all items that came in this kit!

For this card I decided to use the embossed paper from the kit to create the background and I think the background on this card steals the show 🙂

Even tho the paper is very textured I was able to emboss on it and was very happy with the result. Once I heat embossed the sentiment I die cut the paper with a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to the card base using foam tape.

Now that I had the background and the sentiment completed I started working on adding the images. I decided to keep it simple and add just a mermaid and a fish as I really wanted to keep the most of that beautiful background paper visible.

I colored one of the mermaids and one of the fish from the stamp set with alcohol markers, fussy cute them out and added them to the panel using foam tape.

I added Nuvo drops in gloss white to embellish the card.
