Hello Crafty Friends!
I am finally back after a super busy July to share a calming summer themed card to close out this month. I had a chance to use the beautiful Magical Mermaid stamp set with the new Tranquil Textures Designer Series paper and it is match made in….the ocean!! 🙂
The mermaid stamp is one of the best ones Stampin’ Up! sells to practice your Blends Coloring technique! To color this beauty I used Light Bermuda Bay, Light and Dark Pool Party, Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry, Light Old Olive and Light Daffodil Delight. I just kept adding tiny bits of color until I liked the result. Of course all mermaids required sparkle so there is plenty of clear of Wink of Stella used as well! The background paper is from the Tranquil Tide DSP. I also used some of this same DSP to cut out the triangle element using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits. The cardstock colors used are Mint Macaron and Balmy Blue.
I hope this cards helps you come up with some magical and creative ideas!
