You are Mer-mazing

Howdy, friends! This week is almost to the end… where is the time going?! I can’t believe we’re in the middle of May already! I’ve popped in with a card I created for The Outlawz Challenges. I have a couple more to share in a little while, so stay tuned! This cute hybrid thank you card is for the May Progressive Freebie Challenge. Our sponsor this month is Elena Zinski Art and we were provided the most adorable Amelia Mermaid digital image to create with. Have I mentioned that the perk for playing in this challenge each month is a free digital image?! ;)


Using the pre-colored version of this image, I kept with a blue color scheme which seemed perfect for a mermaid. I alternated teal and blue glitter Washi Tape across a blue digital paper background and then adhered it to the card base. I cut the image with a stitched rectangle die, adhered it to the front and stamped the sentiment beneath it in blue archival ink. I added Glossy Accents to her sunglasses and finished the front with sparkly blue bling.


I embellished the inside panel with a leftover piece of the blue digital paper used on the front and stamped the sentiment in the blue archival ink.


And one more peek… loving how this turned out! Isn’t she just the sassiest thing ever?!
