Mermaid Moments

Hi there! This is one of three mermaids from my Mermaid Moments clear set released this summer.  I made the ocean background using Distress Oxide inks - if you've never tried them, wow, they blend beautifully.  It's also easy to create a watery looking scene if you sprinkle water on it, and dab it with a tissue, or even just leave it to dry, it looks like you see here, with the added texture.  I love my oxide inks!  I thought that the background paper from the 6x6 Mermaid paper pack went perfectly too!  Just to frame it up nicely, I used the Wonky Window Die.  I coloured the images with Copics and then fussy cut them out, but you don't have to, you could get the dies that match the mermaids because those are available too! Just in case you are interested, I linked the dies below, but remember that the dies leave a tiny border around the images.  You can use your coloured medium of choice (coloured pencil, marker, paint, what ever you use) to colour that white space around the image that is left by the die if you want it to blend into your background (been there, done that, lol!).  But the images on this card were fussy cut - aka, cut out by hand, right on the black outline. The sentiment is from the Mermaid Moments Sentiments clear set.  Links are below.  Thanks for looking!

  1. I adore this Crissy! I had just coloured up that same beautiful mermaid when you shared this and it was so lovely to see her with the candyfloss pink hair! I love the way her pose worked with the lines of the background die, that was such a cool placement. A very gorgeous, very cool card hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
