Mermaid image is stamped with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink. I used Nuvo Aqua Flow Brush Pens and Shimmer Powders to color the image. To color her tale, I mixed Atlantis Burst Shimmer Powder with water to make a watercolor. The color of the sand is a mix of AquaFlow Pen, Solar Flare Shimmer Powder, and water. More sparkle was added to the mermaid tale with Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen Her hair are sparkled up with Sakura Glue Pen and Mystical Mauve Glitter. Some Bluebird Super Thick Embossing Powder was sprinkled to the image. I used the Heat Tool from underneath to melt the powder.
The sentiment and seashells are stamped with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink. Seashells are from Mermaid Kisses Stamp Set #529. I colored them with Nuvo Marker Pens and Nuvo Mousses (Peony Pink and Mother of Pearl). The mousse was added with waterbrush. Starfish was covered with Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops drops. Dimensional Glue was added to the pearls.
Flowers and leaves are die cut with Spellbinders dies. I used Distress inks to color the flowers. They are shaped with Tonic Floral Crafters Tool Set tools. After the rose was assembled, I made little dots with Sakura Glue Pen and sprinkled Neon Super Thick Embossing Powder on top. I heat set it with the Heat Tool. Although the leaves were already cut out of green paper, I added more color to them with AquaFlow pen. Misty Isles Glitter has adhered to the leaves with Sakura Glue Pen. I used scissors to cut another seashell in half and adhered the pieces underneath the rose.
Edges of the matting layer behind the Mermaid image are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape tape and Misty Isles Glitter.
To add the interest to the card base, I sprinkled Fawn Super Thick Embossing Powder EP and a bit of Neon Super Thick Embossing Powder to the bottom left half and heat set it from underneath the paper.
