Born To Be A Mermaid

Hello crafty friends!  I'm so excited to be guest designing this month for  @wonderingwabbit on Instagram.

This beautiful Maisy mermaid digital stamp was created by Nathalie of @wonderingwabbit.  I die cut a panel of bristol card and inked it with Brushed Corduroy, Tea Dye, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks.  I splattered the panel with water, thinned white gouache, and a bit of thinned brown acrylic paint.  I printed the sentiment along the top of the panel.

I printed Maisy on Neenah card stock, colored her with copics, and fussy cut her.  I used a white gel pen to add texture to her fin.  I adhered the mermaid directly to my card and then added a few clear bubble embellishments.

Copics:

Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000; R20; C3, C1

Hair - E37, #99, E97, YR21

Top/Fin - RV66, RV55, RV52, RV10

Hello Friend

Happy Saturday everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring an adorable digital stamp from the My Enchanted Colors ko-fi shop!


You can find My Enchanted Colors and her ko-fi shop on Instagram.  She has the sweetest digital stamp so be sure to hop over and check her out.  To begin my card, I cut a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of polka-dot paper from my stash.  Next, I die cut some frames from both yellow and white card stock.  I glued 3 layers of the white frame together and then glued a yellow frame over those.  I cut a piece of white card stock to fit the frame and inked it with Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks.  I stamped a sentiment on the inked panel, glued it behind the layers of frames, and adhered it to my card.  I printed the images on Neenah card stock, colored them with copics, and fussy cut them.  I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the flowers and bees' cheeks and I used a black gel pen on the bees' eyes and antennae.  I added some Glamour Dust to their wings to give them some sparkle.  I adhered the flowers and bees directly to the inked panel and then attached the bunny over the frame with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful and fun weekend!

These adorable images are from the Kitchen Cuties stamp set.  I colored the images with copics and fussy-cut them.  I used a black gel pen on the puppy's eye.  I followed the sketch for the current challenge and used some MFT designer papers from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great weekend!

Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge

Good morning crafty friends!  Today I'm guest designing for the Caffeinated Christmas Challenge #27

The theme for March is Green.  In order to play along, you must link a new Christmas/Holiday themed card with green.  Your card can be coffee, tea, or hot cocoa!  Check out the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge blog for all the details!  I used images from the adorable Mama Elephant Hot Cocoa stamp set to create my card.  I inked a stitched rectangle with Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink, splattered it with thinned white gouache, and stamped a few small snowflakes with white pigment ink.  I adhered the stitched rectangle to layers of green and red cardstock.  I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set along the bottom of my card.  I colored the images with copics and fussy cut them.  I used a black gel pen on the penguin and deer eyes and used a white gel pen to add some highlights.  I adhered the images to my card with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous day!

Hugs, Anita
