How has your weekend been? I spent yesterday making cards and today we have been in the garden tidying up. It was lovely and sunny today it was a shame it was so cloudy on Eclipse day meaning that we didn't get to see anything. The television coverage was good and I have enjoyed seeing other people's photographs.
I ordered some LOTV toppers for some cards I need to make soon and this cute little mermaid just popped into my basket. She arrived on Saturday and I just couldn't wait to use her.
I made the background by stamping the bottom of the card with a Sheena stamp that I got free with a magazine. Then I used CS Pearl White PVA glue and CS Blue Sparkle Glue to make dots around where the image would be placed.
I stamped the image with Cobalt Archival and heat embossed it with CS Clear Fine Detail embossing powder. I then coloured the image with my Promarkers. I cut the image out with a die and I used Distress to ink through the die to leave a white edge around the outside. I put some pearl PVA on the bubbles to add some texture.
This LOTV stamp came free with another magazine sometime ago. Though it has flowers on it this is the only round sentiment that I have and I wanted a round one.
She is so cute I have already got some other ideas for how to use her. I hope you all have a good week and that you find some time to craft.
