Hooked on Mermaids

Hooked Mermaid xcu06744
Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS335) is all about the beach! I thought these shells, waves & mermaid would fit right in. The hardest part about this card was finding an ink that would stick to this shimmery lt. teal card stock.

I wanted to stamp the shells & highlight the seahorse & waves with a blue ink & I only have Stazon in white & black. I tried Distress ink, Memento, Chalk ink..nothing would stick. Until I got out my Ancient Page. Success!  So after stamping & coloring the mermaid, I fussy cut her & the stamped shells. The waves & seahorse were die cut & highlighted w/ ink. The circle burst was also die cut & I used the white Stazon to stamp the wave pattern inside.

After it was all attached to the card, I stamped the greeting & added stickles for sparkle. These are the Copics I used on the mermaid.
