Distress Oxide Blended & Copic Coloured Mermaid Birthday Card | SSS Beautiful Mermaid Stamp Set

Updated: Sep 14


Hello everyone and thank you so much for stopping by!! Monday is quickly becoming my favourite day of the week as I get to see all you lovely people and share my new project!! This week I have this Beautiful Mermaid Birthday card so let's jump right in.


To start I like to have my cardstock cut down before starting my project and on this one, I went a 1/4 inch difference between my panels. I am using an A2 sized card base 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches, my black matte is 5 1/4 by 4 inches and my panel is 5 by 3 3/4 inches. Using my Mini Misti I stamped a Mermaid from Simon Says Stamp Beautiful mermaids stamp set and used Inkadinkadoo Masking paper.


I masked my mermaid and the bottom of the panel and blended on Distress Oxides in the colours Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Abandoned Coral for the sky and for the water I used Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Black soot Distress Oxide inks, then removed my mask.


I used Copic Markers to colour in the mermaid image. For the rock, I used C1, C3, C5 and C7, for the skin I used E51, E21, and E41, for the hair I used V04, V15, and V17 and for the tail and clam's I used B00, BG01, and BG45. Once the colouring was all done I used Nuvo Deluxe Glue and adhered my panel and matte to the card base and splattered on some Inkon3 Liquid Pixie Dust for some extra shine. I also white heat embossed a sentiment and cut it down to a label then adhered it down with Darice Foam Strips.


I couldn't resist adding some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Jewels to the panel just to finish it off. If you would like to see a step by step of this card please check out the video below. Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this weeks card!!
