I started this card, knowing the size I wanted to make, but basically nothing else. So, when I got to my desk, I got to work! I created an ink blended background to make it look a little “under the sea”-esque with the Shell Yeah stamps. I was going to use more mermaids, but decided against it because that required more cleaning. Lol Before stamping the mermaids, I created splatter using some opal iridescent shimmer pen.
While waiting for the panel to dry, I colored up the unicorn from Majestic AF and the wreath. Afterward, I added shimmer using my opal shimmer pen, for added majesty. Popped it up on foam tape, heat embossed the mermaids, and matted my panel.
I faffed around a little bit debating if I wanted to add a sentiment. Ultimately, I felt it made a better impression without one, and added gemstones, instead. I definitely loved that decision for this card. No regrets.
