You are Mermazing!

Hello out there!

It's Tuesday...already!  The weeks sure seem to fly by, even being in quarantine mode. My mom always said the older I got, the faster time would fly by. She was right, it seems!  

I have a pretty Technique Junkies card to share with you today using one of the wonderful June release stamp sets, 'Oceans of Love'.

This set is 'Mermazing'!  It has 4 Images, and 5 sentiments, and is fun to create with. If you're wanting a fun summer set, this is the one to get!

Here's my card:

Isn't she the sweetest mermaid ever?  To create this card, I blended ink onto a white panel, using some blending brushes. Then, I stenciled using A Colorful Life 'Grunge Dots' Stencil, using a few shades of blue and green. The mermaid was stamped onto some white cardstock, and colored with Copic Markers and a white gel pen. She was then die cut with a rectangle die, using an 'outside the box' technique before matting with pink cardstock. Her white background was dotted with Copics. The sentiment was stamped, matted on pink, and dotted. It needed a little something else, thus the two 'flag' ends. I adhered a length of blue sparkly tulle behind the focal panel, prior to mounting it with dimensional foam. Same with sentiment. Voila! Panel was attached to pink card base, and a darling card was finished!  Hope you like her!

Thanks for stopping by today - Hope you like the card - I'm going to enter it in the Summer Challenge on the Technique Junkies FaceBook page. The theme is Floral, Fauna, People, and Food. Hoping she works as 'people'!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Your little turtle-riding mermaid is just the cutest! I love her sweet expression and the lovely sea flowers in her hair. The background you created looks awesome, and that tulle is a really fun embellishment.

Oh what a fun card - mermaids are very popular this season. And love that she is riding a cute little turtle. Love your background. Great job on this one dear friend.

Patti, This is just so precious! Great colors and I adore that background. How perfect for a watery look. :-D I'm playing catch up now that I'm back home from visiting with my son and his family so I have to look at all you've done, even if I run out of time to comment on every one of your posts. For some reason, the home family now thinks I should be doing some things with them. lol
