Hi everyone and Happy Friday!!!!
It is time once again for a new Sami Stamps release!! You're going to totally love this one, it's all about Christmas Mermaids!! Eek!! So fun!
For my card this week, I've used the lovely Mistletoe Kisses Mermaid.
And tried again. This time, I went slow with my swirls and I carefully misted the background, checking after each spritz to make sure it wasn't too saturated. And it turned out perfect! To do the watery background, I just cut a couple of masks with a border die and swiped my ink blending tool away from it to get a faded line.
I printed off the image twice so I could get more of a 3D look by layering them together with foam tape in between. To add a little more excitement to the present, I took some silver thread and wound it around in loops behind the bow. I also stuffed a couple bows in the lower right corner to get a fun shoot of string there as well.
To finish it all off, I just scattered some pearls around the image and heat embossed my sentiment from The Cat's Pajamas Elegant Christmas stamp set (appears to be sold out since I can't find the link to it..)!! That sentiment just seemed perfect for this lovey image! Fun fun!
