I made this card using Crafty Secret's new Mermaid collection. What a fun set to color! BTW, their website is temporarily down.....so the link will take you to the blog instead. Hopefully, it will be up and running soon!
I used my Copics to color her in and added Stickles to the flowers and Crystal lacquer to the water. The rectangles and frame were cut with Spellbinders. I inked the edges of all of them. I sprayed adhesive to the frame and sprinkled Martha Stewart clear glitter over it. I cut the front panel of the card in half.......just to be a bit different! I adhered the image and glittered frame to a piece of clear transparency and attached all of it to the "half" panel. I gussied it up a bit with a pretty Papertrey satin bow, button, and a seastar charm. The paper is by My Mind's Eye.
Did I tell you that my class is over tomorrow? (........only like a million times) My project is complete and tomorrow I present it to the teachers and fellow students. What a relief! I will now be able to spend more time doing the things I love.....cards, scrapbooking......! My report cards for my 5th graders are finished, stuffed in their envelopes and ready to go out today. A hectic week to say the least!
