Sassy Mermaid

Hi Sweet Pea lovers out there. Today I want to share you a new creation I made with this gorgeous and sassy mermaid stamp from the Terrell Dorfeo Art Collection. She comes with different sentiments and you can find her HERE.

I challenged myself and made a step card. Something I already wanted to do since longer as I like that shape and it is quite different with several steps to decorate. I thought this beautiful stamp would fit perfect for my first try.  

I coloured her with Distress Inks an heavy aquarell paper.

I made several photos to see more details of the card.

The designer papers I used are from my scrap box where I collect the remaining pieces of the papers I already used. So this shape is a great opportunity to use them, especially when you are like me and always take new paper sheets to work with.

On the middle step I added a blue iridescent paper, to let it look more like water and waves. The dies I used for the swirl and the leafs are from Magnolia and the flowers are from Wild Orchid.

Thank you so much for taking a look. Before you go check all the fabulous new artists at Sweet Pea Stamps.

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Karina
