Hello everybody, Lori with you today.
By The Sea card by Lori Williams
Today’s card is perfect for this time of year with Fourth of July right around the corner and summer upon us. My card was created using the Graphic 45 By The Sea Stamps Sets. Yes , I said sets as I used every single one of them, LOL. I adore them all.
To create a card similar to this one use the Graphic 45 By The Sea paper collection. I cut out the Mermaids wanted rectangle from the paper and randomly stamped various seashells around it with Versa mark Ink, covered with blue embossing powder and then heat set. Next I stamped the mermaid stamp on card stock and colored in with watercolor pencils. The mermaid was then cut out with an X-Acto tool. I then stamped the By The Sea sentiment and colored in with watercolor pencils and glued down to some of the dark blue patterned paper. I hand cut around the sentiment leaving a blue border. The mermaid and the By the Sea sentiment was applied to the card using foam tape. I then made a bow with canvas ribbon, hung a pearl from the center of the bow and covered everything over with a fish that was stamped, embossed, heat set and the fussy cut and glued down to the center of the bow. The base layers are all attached with foam tape so you have a lot of dimension to the card.
