MERMAID FOR GRACE

Being on a Design Team I make ALOT of cards. I am so excited today...to make one for a cause. This little mermaid is going to CARDS FOR GRACE.

She is also for DARE TO GET DIRTY challenges by peanutbee and AmberDawn01. Dare to get dirty challenges are for SCS Fan Club Members. To find more about SCS Fan Club here's the link.

This sweet digi is from Pink Cat Studio.

I printed her out three times cutting differnt pieces and paper toled her after I colored and sponged around all edges.

I put dimensional glaze on her scales, headband and top.

I used jumbo scallop dienamics from My Favorit Things for the waves. The panels were slightly different in height.

For the sand I tore the top of my Kraft panel and ran through my cuttlebug using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder and then sponged with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink Using my Blending Tool. It really brings out the embossing.

I found this cute gingham button that I adhered with score tap and used glue dots to adhere this dollar store charm with. I tied a piece of sheer ribbon to the top of the charm to hide the hole.

So there you have it. I am so glad you stopped by. Hope you found inspiration.

This is downright adorable. The textured and torn BG, the shiny tail - the whole thing!
