Mermaid birthday card

After a busy week, this past weekend was low-key and allowed for plenty of time at my craft table. It just so happened that the Splitcoaststampers forum Virtual Stamp Night was taking place, providing lots of inspiration! Each challenge posted has it’s own twist, encouraging you to use all kinds of different supplies. One of my favorite cards was one I created based on a challenge to include a mermaid on your card.

Because each challenge is supposed to be completed within an hour, I opted to stamp and heat emboss this image instead of coloring it in. To help it stand out against the colored cardstock background a bit more, I outlined the image using a similarly-colored Prismacolor pencil. To finish is a stamped sentiment from the same stamp set layered over die cut labels, silver thread and a few clear epoxy gems.
