Hugs, Fishes and Mermaid Kisses! #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mermaid Lagoon stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

And here’s my cute summer under the sea project for you!!! I created a little scene out of fabulous new CDD Mermaid Lagoon and Sunny Smiles stamp sets! I stamped a bunch of images with a waterproof ink on a Bristol paper, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut with my scissors leaving a tiny white edge around.

For the background I used the same Bristol paper and die-cut the scene using new Ocean Border Die and Fancy Frame Die sets! Then I proceeded with a quick and simple ink blending using regular Distress inks. Here’s the tip how you can stretch you dies! I die-cut once more the wavy line from Ocean Border Dies and used it as a stencil for the water part giving a little bit of texture to the background! Assembling the card, popped some elements on a foam tape for a bit of dimension and interest and, of course, colds’r skip some shimmer!!!

  1. Love the 3D effect of this card! Your background ocean looks AMAZING! Love the way you used the wave dies to create the subtle waves in the background too! Adorable scene, fantastic design and amazing colouring! Love it!

  2. I love your card. I envy your fussy cutting skills. I don’t think I could cut out the fish, sea horse, crab and other pieces of the card nearly as well.

  3. This card is so precious! I love all of the little details at the bottom of the scene and your coloring is wonderful.

  4. Oh Tatiana your card is so awesome.♥ Your coloring and the background are so wonderful, I really love it.♥ Many thanks for sharing your inspiration.♥
    Hugs
