Carnies Mermaid

Today's post is gonna be short and sweet, cause I'm just a stamping fool today and want to take advantage of the time I have. I do want to share a card I just finished using the Carnies Mermaid from the Smeared Ink set.

I made the background using glossy white cardstock and ink refills from Stampin' Up, then added some shiny purple nail polish to some of the edges. The card base is stamped with purple painted bubble wrap, and the shiny black ribbon came from a RAK from Monica (thank you Monica!!!!!!!!). To add the mermaid's shadow, I embossed the image in black powder directly onto my square, then cut out a colored mermaid image and mounted her with 3-D pop dots. Finally, I added in black wire. Hope you enjoy it, and hopefully I'll have a couple more projects to post after today!!!


  1. Awesome card, Terra! Love the background and all of that wire, and your coloring is great :)

  2. I told you I LOVE it!! The black wire is hot! The image is awesome!! Can't wait to get my hands on some of your fabo stamps!!
