Hello and welcome!
Today is my turn to get you inspired for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up Challenge! I came up with a fresh summer card featuring Mermaid Kisses stamp set!
In case you want to play along, as well, here’s how you can do that: you have all month to play along and make a project using just the inspiration, just the sketch or Mix it Up and use both! It is totally up to you! You can find all the rules at SugarPea blog right here!!!
I kept it really simple today! To start, I used the coordinating Mermaid Kisses SugarCut to die cut the elements I needed for this project from Neenah Solar White paper. Then I made the stamping using Mermaid Kisses stamp set, Memento Tuxedo Black ink and MISTI tool. I colored all the stamps with copic markers and proceeded working on the background..
In case you’re interested, I’m leaving here all the exact colors used on the card: COPIC skin E50-E51-E53-E55; hair R32-R14-R35-R46-R89; BG10-BG11-BG23-BG49; YG01-YG05-YG07-G07; C2.
The background was embellished with faux dots by using the largest rectangle die from Card Front Element Builder II set. I masked a circle towards the left part of the card front with a piece of masking paper and inked the wavy water background inside the circle with Mermaid Lagoon Oxide, Blueprint Sketch Oxide Distress inks and the blending brushes. The waves were added by using the cloud edge of Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil. Finally I split the matching sentiment from Mermaid Kisses stamp set with a pair of sharp small scissors, heat embossed it on two narrow strips of a black cardstock and arranged all the elements on an extended A2 size card base with a bit of dimension. I generous coat of a clear shimmer pen gave a final touch to this card!
Hope you like this clean and simple card! Now it’s your turn to link up your creations for a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate from SugarPea Designs! Can’t wait to see what you create!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
