Mermaid 01

For this one, I wanted to create a sort of “murky” underwater effect so I stamped the tail onto a white panel with some rich green pigment inks and then white embossed the sentiment onto a quarter sheet of vellum card stock.  After cutting the bottom edge with a wave die,  I trimmed the width of the vellum piece and adhered it to the white panel by scoring along the top edge and folding it over to secure it to the back side. By mounting this panel to a (white) base card, I could sandwich that vellum flap in between so there is no adhesive showing.    I die cut the shell from some watercolor paper and watercolored it quickly and then 3D mounted it.  I could have used one of the bubble die cuts from the set, but instead I used White NUVO Drops to simulate a pearl nestled inside the shell.

I debated adding more to this, but I loved it SO SO much just like this, I decided I better not mess with it. LOL!
