Dreamy Mermaid with Batik Shell Background

Hello Junkies!
Karen McAlpine with you today.  We are having lovely summer weather here in Michigan, USA.  Just the perfect weather for sending a beach/sea themed card to a special someone.  The Technique Junkies June Release  collection is full of  gorgeous beach themed stamps!! I used several of the new stamps and beachy colors to create my dreamy mermaid card.

Materials List:
Stamps: Batik Shell Swirls and By the Sea (Set of 6) from Technique Junkies
Ink: Cameo Coral (retired Stampin' Up); Brown; Tattered Rose Distress
CS: White Textured; Cameo Coral (Stampin' Up)

Make It:

  • Make a card base from Cameo Coral CS
  • On white textured CS, stamp the Batik Shell Swirls with Tattered Rose ink
  • Stamp the Mermaid (from By the Sea Set) with Cameo Coral ink
  • Stamp the sentiment (from By the Sea Set) with brown ink
  • Add to the card base

Stamping the Batik Shell Swirls stamp on the textured CS makes such a soft and romantic background.  So lovely! The By the Sea Set also has several other beach/sea sentiments!  A great set for card makers.  I am always looking for sets with nice sentiments for my all occasion cards.  So, really enjoying this set!

Hope you have enjoyed this serene beach themed project.  All the new June Releases are all just so lovely!!  Thanks for visiting and see you next time.
