Hello again today! LOVE those days when homeschooling goes just right and I can sneak a card or two in! I had been eyeing this weeks Runway Inspired Challenge, and as I looked at some of the papers on my desk - the perfect ones jumped out at me!
Here is the inspiration photo:
I pulled out the stripes and the yellow with my pattern paper - the yellow is from Glitz Designs Uncharted Waters 6x6 paper pad, and the black and white stripe is from Crate Paper's DIY 6x6 paper pad.
As I looked at that nautical paper, I instantly thought of the Market Street Stamps set, Dreaming of the Sea. I used my Paper Smooches Notebook Basic die, then stamped the mermaid image in simple black ink. Added the sentiment with PTI ink - in bright pink, to pull the bit of pink out of the inspiration photo.
Inked the edges with distress ink in Antique Linen, then tied some jute twine and a coordinating button from my stash on, before attaching it to the pattern paper with foam adhesive.
Rounded a couple corners of the pattern paper, as well as the card base - and inked the cardbase with the same distress ink, then attached the front panel with more foam adhesive to the cardbase.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
