MY Mum's Craft Shop Design Team - May Project #1

Hi everyone šŸ’œ

I'm here with an extra My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) Design Team card for you and it's a little earlier than normal. I will be posting another card on Thursday which is my normal DT day - so watch this space. For my card today I've chosen one of the May launch stamp sets from My Favorite Thing (MFT), it's called 'Mermazing'. I just think this set is absolutely gorgeous - the mermaids and little extras are so sweet. I used Brushos for the background and coloured all the images with Copics. Hope you like it.

Here's What I Did
The 6" x 4½" card base was cut to size to create a top folding card, then a piece of black card was cut to size and glued to the front.  The background was created using Brushos,water and watercolour card; the seaweed, fish and rocks were stamped over the top using coloured ink. Using different sized circle stamps I added bubbles using white paint, when everything was dry a sentiment was stamped with black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  the completed background was cut to size and added to the card front.

The mermaids, turtle and clown fish were stamped onto Neenah card and coloured using Copics, glitter pen were added to the mermaid's tails and tops. All the images were then cut out and added to the card front - some where glued flat and some were raised up using foam tape. To complete the card I added a few sequins.
