Mermaid

Happy Sunday, my friends! Hope you are enjoying the last days of the summer. =) Here is a card that I made using one of the images that will be released soon by Whiff Of Joy Stamps.


Isn't she a beauty? She is one of the princesses from the WOJ Fall Stamp Kit and the kit will be released as individual stamps on September 1st. You can also pre-order the Secret Winter Kit here.


The Mermaid is stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Labels 18 die. The piece is inked with antique linen and tea dye distress inks when the paper was still in the die. I also added some Star Dust Stickles to her tail for a little shine.


The patterned paper is from the gorgeous Lost & Found Two - Breeze collection by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment tag is cut using the Tiny Tags die from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment stamp is from the Cherry Blossoms set by Flourishes.

That's it for now. Have a fabulous day! =)





Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous coloring and beautiful sponging. I need to try out the Antique Linen and Tea Dye combo. It looks great, softer then adding Vintage photo.
Hugs and smiles
