Mermaids are a hot trend with little girls. I have that on good authority from my 3 year old granddaughter, Brooke. She even has a new Mermaid Toothbrush! You'll also find that mermaids are trending in fashion and toys. Mermaid party themes are also hot. Mermaids are just one of the reasons that I love the Magical Day Bundle for Card Making and Scrapbooking. There's plenty to interest boys too. See the knight and the dragon in action here.
The Cards are similar, but different. For this card, I used the Sweet Soiree Decorative Masks with Embossing paste to make my background. Hint: To make my embossing paste green, I added a few drops of Pear Pizzazz Ink. I colored the mermaid with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. She's mostly Pink Pirouette with just a touch of Old Olive for her tail. The Stitched Shape behind her is Blushing Bride.
For my second Mermaid Card, the background looks more like waves. Hint: I created the background using the Ruffled Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder and Blushing Bride Card Stock. So what's your vote? Let us know in the comments of this blog post.
The color inspiration for both cards came from this week's Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge CC670. Karen chose Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz and for dessert she chose lace. I guess that I didn't technically use lace, but the Delicate White Doily looks a lot like lace to me. Love these Karen's Pretty Soft Color choices. It's sure to be a lovely gallery this week.
