Be A Mermaid



Addicted To CAS Challenge #141 is up and running with code word: SUMMERTIME.

For my card, I created a background on watercolor paper with Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers. I heat embossed the mermaid's tail from Essentials By Ellen Inner Mermaid in silver on vellum, die cut it with a matching die, mounted it on the watercolor background and added the sentiment.

Don't forget, as always, Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, and Kylie is generously awarding the winner with a $20.00 gift certificate to the store!

Your heat embossed mermaid tail is fabulous Stephanie and looks great against your background. I absolutely love that sentiment but as I can't swim being a mermaid is only a dream....

Hi Stephanie ~ You certainly know how to showcase a mermaid! I love that you embossed her in silver on vellum...it adds such an elegant feel to the image! Love your watercolored background, too! A really stunning card! I was resisting this stamp set, but when I saw your card in the Admin Blog, I shot over to Ellen Hutson's store and bought it...thanks so much for inspiring me, once again :)

Thanks for the beautiful words adressed to me! (I am a bit blushing here :) !) Think your inking is so beautiful, not only on this card, but on so many of your artwork; it inspires me every time! Thanks for having me as Guest Designer at ATCAS! Have a good sunday and a colourful week! Hugs, Gerrina

I love your beautiful mermaid card. Fantastic water drops on the background, and the silver embossing really makes this extra gorgeous! (love how it extends past the focal panel)

The background is fabulous, Stephanie, and embossing the mermaid on vellum is stunning.
