A Beautiful Mermaid Card

j-9532_breath

I am quite pleased with how this card turned out.  (Except the sentiment isn’t level – it’s hard to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig with cling blocks.)

The background paper is from a sheet of Gelli Plate prints.  The idea for the glitter comes from my recent class at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The image is matted with SU’s Certainly Celery, SU pearls of various sizes, and the sentiment is stamped in SU’s Taken with Teal ink.  The stamp set is Sparkle N Sprinkle, stamped in London Fog Memento and colored with Copics, as are the shells.

My coloring and glittering still need lots of practice, but I had fun putting this card together.
