Little Mermaids by Cat

Hi everyone! 
It's Cat here to share today's DT Inspiration 

Paper Nest Dolls has a new release this month and as its May of course it had to be Mermaids for Mer-May.

You can purchase the Mermaid set as digis here or as rubber stamps here

I have used digital images to create this adorable under water themed shaker card 

So To make this card:

To begin I created the sea backing paper with Tim Holts Distress inks. ( Chipped Sapphire, Salty Sea, Mermaid Lagoon, Tumbled Glass) I placed the inks onto a glass mat, spritz with water and place the card down on top, pressing down gently so the card would soak up the ink. I then set it aside to dry. 

I then coloured the mermaids and the sea hoarse and jellyfish with Promarkers and fussy cut them out. Sorry I used so many markers and forgot to write them down, but if you would like to know any good colour combos please do give me a comment or message and I'll get back to you. 

I then created the frame using two Square dies. I would use at least one if not two sizes down or between the 2 square dies to make a good thick frame. 

I then took the acetate, remember it has to be heat resistant acetate to be able to create the next part. I then stamped the Sentiment with Versamarke and used Wow white embossing powder to hear emboss on to the acetate, and stuck it to the square frame. 

I added in the sequins onto the dried base and using double foam layers placed the frame on top. Finally adding the Mermaids and animals to the card. 

I hope you like it!

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
