Fin-tastic Birthday

Hello,

I'm here with a quick post today to share a birthday card :) I'm a fan of blue and when I saw the theme Shades of Blue with Your Next Stamp, I knew I had to create one for sure and play along this time!

So here is what I made using my new stash - stamp set and stencil from Newton's Nook Designs!

I've used the Narly Mermaids stamp set from Newton's Nook Designs for the mermaid. It is stamped using Gina K Designs Amalgam Jet Black ink and colored using Arteza real brush pens. I then fussy cut the image close to the stamping, to avoid a white border. The mat for the mermaid is an ink blended cardstock - I've used Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean distress inks for the blending. I also have a white scalloped stitched diecut to frame the blended cardstock. 


The main base is a white side folding A2 notecard. And the background is created using Salty Ocean distress ink, along with Seashells stencil from Newton's Nook Designs. I applied a heavy hand with the same ink to show the difference for the stencil work. I then white heat embossed the sentiment from the same mermaid stamp set on a blue ink blended cardstock. The mermaid image and the sentiment are adhered using foam tape for added dimension.



I completed the card by adding glitter to the narwhal and the mermaid's tail using Wink of Stella glitter brush.

Thank you for stopping by, hope you like my card! Do let me know your feedback! Have a nice day :)
