Stampers Delights – MerMay Week 1

All this month Stampers Delights is celebrating Mer-May!  You can find all the fabulous Stampers Delights mermaid images here.  This card uses the Chibi – Mermaid Delphin digital stamp.

I just love her and her fishy friend–and the punny sentiment!  For a proper underwater scene, I printed her on blue cardstock.  Every so often I enjoy the adventure of coloring on paper that isn’t white.

I ended up with pretty much a one layer card, but I kept layering one more colors and media.  The second layer made all the difference–stenciled water.  My go to ink for stenciling is usually Distress Oxides, but I knew that ink would cover the cute sentiment too much, so I opted for Bahama Blue Memento Ink.

Now it’s definitely a fun underwater scene isn’t it?  But still needs just a bit more–some metallic marker and white gel pen highlights and details.

To finish my card, I die cut and glued to a nice clean white card base and finished off with some sequins where bubbles might be.
