Good morning, Jess here! I had a technical snafu earlier this month and had to miss my monthly solo post so I decided to sneak in here on our extra 5th week and share my card! The new Lawn Fawn release is absolutely mindblowing!! I cannot get enough of the mermaids! The Little Mermaid was one of my favorite movies as a kid so here's my interpretation of the iconic scene where the sea creatures sing "Under the Sea" to Ariel. (And since I'm Japanese I decided to make my mermaid have dark hair instead of bright red hair...in my childhood imaginings, she always looked just like me! ;) )
To create my card I started by stamping the mermaids and sea creatures onto watercolor paper with versafine and then heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. Next I watercolored them with Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors and let them air dry for a few hours. Once they were totally dry I used my ScanNCut to cut them out with a slight border. (PS I realized that my ScanNCut desperately needed realignment after I made my card...oops...)
To create my border I stamped the small schools of fish onto watercolor paper with versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I painted over the fish with rubber cement to mask them. Once the rubber cement was totally dry I painted the background with the same Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors. I flicked various shades of brown over the bottom to create the look of sand. Once the background was dry I rubbed off the rubber cement and painted the schools of fish. Next I stamped the sentiment with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I added some highlights to my mermaid's hair with a white colored pencil and added some shimmer to her with a spectrum noir clear sparkle brush. Finally I arranged my underwater scene with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape.
Did you spot Flounder and Sebastian on my card? ;) Here's a closer look:
So that's my card for today! Head over to my blog for two more mermaid-filled cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
