Actually, it all started when I found my missing polka dot stencil from American Crafts. I've not used it in over a year, so I decided to get to work creating a polka dot background using Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and a spritz or two of Shimmer Spray on the backside of the stencil. Wow! What a bubbly, shimmery background it made! It was perfect to add this fabulous Mermaid's tail!
I heat embossed the tail image onto a piece of Cool Caribbean cardstock using Nuvo Shimmering Pearl embossing powder. It was the perfect amount of shine for this card! I die cut it and then added it to the bubbly background using foam squares. I saw a fabulous card on Instagram from Jessica at All the Sparkle and I LOVED how she created the bubbles using sequins. While mine don't look like hers, she definitely inspired me so I wanted to give her a shout out! I used the Mermaid Mix Sequins as well as a few rain drop embellishments. I just couldn't resist and added a few more Nuvo drops here and there! The sentiment was stamped in black and then I added one rain drop to the center of the "o" in drop! It actually magnifies the "o" in a cool way! I'll be sharing a new card for The Challenge tomorrow so stay tuned! Thanks for fluttering by!
