Good morning, well its Monday already but I'm counting the days until my week off work next week! I can't wait :-) Today's card features the gorgeous new stamps from Chocolate Baroque, Tangled Fragments. I've combined them with an old favourite, the beautiful mermaid from Underwater Kingdom
I began by stamping the mermaid with Memento Tuxedo Black and colouring her with Graph'It markers before masking her with some masking tissue. I stamped the lovely fragment in the background using a Waterfall Big & Juicy inkpad and then inked around the edges very lightly with distress inks (Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters). I removed the masking tissue and added a shadow around the mermaid with my markers
The background was made with the Waterfall Big & Juicy inkpad, I swiped it over my craft mat and misted the ink with water before mopping up with a square of white card. I over stamped with the same inkpad, again using the beautiful fragment stamp. I used the excess ink on my craft mat to colour some seam binding ribbon.
I used some little pearls in the corners and added a sentiment from Loving Sentiments and popped on a little turtle charm to finish off.
