Mermaid for Each Other IPC 102

Happy Monday!
Welcome to a new INKY PAW’S CHALLENGE!
Check out this fun sketch we have for you to use.

Summer is here, so I decided to go in a beachy direction.

Mermaid for Each Other a card by Diane Morales | Purr-Made Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

This card all starts with the background.
I used 3 types of Distress Oxide Ink and spattered them on a paint pallet.
Spray on a little water, and smash down your precut cardstock onto the ink.

Make sure you dry your inky creation with a heat gun right away
to keep the colors from over blending.
While that was drying, I turned my attention to my purr-maids form the
I stamped and colored my images in using matching colors from the background.

I kept the background elements simple; die cutting out 2 rectangle panels.
One of the panels, I embossed with the
The second panel I inked in with Abandoned Coral Oxide Ink
Then layer the two elements on top of each other.
A splash of a different color and the bottom element.
was provided by the seahorse and sentiment from the same stamp set.

After I assembled all the elements for the card, I used one of
my favorite crafty items….. EVER!!! Frosted Lace Stickles

This Stickle adds a whole lot of sparkle without
taking away from the color underneath.
That is my inspiration for this sketch.
Here is the crafty aftermath of this card!
