MFT & Avery Elle – Oceans of Love

Hi friends! As you can see, I’m addicted to cardmaking again! I want to share my mermaid card with you today. My inspiration comes from the Avery Elle Canopy Stamp Set.

I have used this stamp set in different ways before and it is still my all time favorite. If you don’t have it, I highly recommend it because it is so versatile!! I used it as flowers here and turned it upside down as garden bush here. You can see the photos below. For today however, I’m using it as coral reef. This is so fun!

I first heat embossed the flowers and the sentiment in white on watercolor paper. Then, I created the background with Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Dusty Concord Distress Inks. I added water droplets for the underwater feel. Once we’ve added the underwater colors, the flowers totally tricked your brain that they are corals!

I stamped out the images from MFT BB Mermazing Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then, I colored them with Copic Markers and added highlights with white gel pen. I have listed all the colors I used below so feel free to use them as reference 🙂 Finally, I die cut them out using MFT BB Mermazing Die-namics.

To finish, I die cut the card panel with SSS Basic Rectangles Die (second largest) and mounted everything on a card base using foam tape and Scor-Tape.

That’s it for today. Thank you for stopping by! Happy crafting! 🙂
