Happy Thursday! I am super excited to be back sharing my card that I created for the collaboration between SpiegelMom Scraps and Ink Road Stamps. In my world, sequins and stamps are like peanut butter and jelly. They just work perfectly together! The Mermaid Bundle has just the ingredients for perfect projects.
I started with a white cardstock base and added some black pen detailing around the outside. I also stamped two of the adorable little mermaids and colored them in with some TomBow markers. Then, I set to the task of creating my hexagons for the bright pop of color and bold element on the card.
I just love how they look and even more how simple they are to create. I have created a short little tutorial over on Instagram that I am sharing today to show you the steps but here’s the written version as well.
- I took a scrap piece of paper and my Distress Oxide ink pads. Using a felt applicator, I simply applied areas of color to the white paper.
- Then, I took some water droplets on my fingers and dripped them all over the inked areas to active the oxides and create a watercolor effect.
- Once dry, I stamped over the top of the areas with a coordinating colored ink pad and either the mini bubbles or mini starfish stamps from the Mermaid Bundle.
- Once my ink was try, I grabbed a mini hexagon punch and punched out a bunch of random shapes. Easy peasy!Once I had all of my hexagons punched, I simply added them in a random pattern to my card. I grabbed some of the sequins from the bundle and added them in sets of two different sizes to just a few random hexagons. Then, I went back and added my two hand-colored mermaids and stamped the getting “Shell Yeah” and that was it. A quick and easy card with a big impact! Make sure to stop by Instagram if you want to check out the quick tutorial showing how I made those hexagons as well.xoxo,
