Mermaid Shelfie

Hello there, today I have a card to share as part of Guest Designing for Sweet Stamp Shop this month. As soon as I saw the Mermaid Shelfie set, I  was eager to ink it up. It is so cute!

I started off by stamping the mermaid, seahorse and narwhal on to some white cardstock with black ink. These were then coloured using Copic Markers and fussy cut out leaving a small white border. I took a piece of masking paper and cut three circles from it. This was added over a piece of white cardstock and then I blended over ink into the circles using Distress Inks.
After removing the masks, I stamped the hello sentiment from the Just The Basics stamp set with black ink. The panel was added to a white 4.75 x4.75" card base with foam tape. The mermaid, seahorse and narwhal were then added to the circles with foam tape. To finish off, I added Nuvo Sea Breeze Jewel Drops for the bubbles.
