Welcome back to my blog friends, and thanks for stopping by. ~ Today's card is a tribute to my love for all things oceany. That's a real word, right? As much as I love the ocean, I never go in the water except maybe just to get my feet wet. I'm afraid of what
lurks swims underneath.
Maybe if I knew that darling little mermaids like this one from HoneyBee Stamps Swimming By swam around protecting timid visitors like me, I wouldn't be so afraid.
I cut her out using the coordinating Honey Cuts Dies and colored this darling little mermaid using Copic markers. I gave her a generous dose of Clear Wink Of Stella to really make her shine.
For the card base, I created this fun blended and stenciled background using Ocean Scene Builder Stencils and Distress Oxide inks in lots of Oceany colors like Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violets. A blend of ocean colored sequins were added for a fun finishing touch.
I hope you'll take some time today to visit Honey Bee Stamps and check out their complete line of ocean themed products. Plus they just had a new release full of the cutest stamps and dies. So much fun going on at Honey Bee Stamps!
I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Magical Fairy Garden
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Ombre (blended background)
Thanks for stopping by!
