Mermaid 05

A simple one-layer card–again, I used pigment inks.  I was so taken with this color scheme that I think I used it on every single design… If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, eh?!

I just let the stamp tail bleed off the fold/gutter crease of the card.  Because I used pigment inks, I was able to use this pretty glittery Under The Sea embossing powder. (similar:  Mermaid TailsCoastal  )  The day I was shooting, I couldn’t get the camera to pick up the sparkle, which is subtle, but IRL,  a lovely, delicate touch that highlights the detail on the mermaid’s scales…  And, these Seaside Holiday sequins by 28 Lilac Lane ??? *PERFECT* compliment and finishing touch!
