Joy Clair - Seas the Day

Hello Everyone, 

today I am sharing two cards using that cute set called Seas the Day from Joy Clair! 

For my first card I used a stencil to make the background. Using distress ink and sponging in a lighter color at the top. I colored the mermaids with Copics. their fishtails are paper pieced with paint chips and heat embossed in gold. The rest I just stamped directly on the background, addling glossy accents to the bubbles and Wink of Stella to the jelly fish.

For my second card I used the same set - those fish are just the mermaids tails. Their back fins are the crowns. Just drew in the eyes and mouth. Added Bakers Twine and a little strip of patterned paper (envelope liner).

Hope you liked this!

Don't forget to play with us in the Joy Clair June challenge - the theme is Masculine or Fathers Day and we have a beautiful inspiration picture to give you some colors to play with! The challenge closes June 30, so there is still some time to play along!

Are you kidding me. The first card is adorable with those sweet mermaids. But the second one...well, all I can say is, you're a freaking genius to see that those elements could be fish and the crown on their backs. I'm totally mind blown.

Beim Anblick dieser Karte wird einem gleich etwas kühler bei diesen augenblicklich tropischen Temperaturen.
Schön, dass du bei BaLiSa dabei bist.
