This month Imagine and Rinea Foil are teaming up to bring you some amazing projects for the month of August and today I have a fun mermaid scales card for your most Mer-Mazing friend!
Time: 1 hour
Place a piece of white cardstock in a stamping aid and place the stamp over the cardstock in the desired position. Close the lid of the stamping aid to affix the stamp to the lid. Pounce VersaFine Nocturne ink over the stamp; close the lid to stamp the image onto the cardstock. Repeat this step if necessary to get a good impression. Leave the stamp affixed to the stamping aid.
Use an Exacto knife to cut away several scales from the image.
Use sponge daubers to apply Verdant, Paradise and Fantasia inks to the cardstock. Blend the inks where they meet.
Use a white gel pen to color in the dots on the scales.
Swipe the piece of cardstock with a Stamping Buddy or other anti-static tool. Place the piece of cardstock back into the stamping aid; apply VersaMark ink to the rubber stamp and close the lid to stamp the image over the first.
Sprinkle the image with Mboss Sparkle Embossing Powder, shake off excess and return to the pouch. Use a heat tool to melt the embossing powder.
Trim several colors of Rinea Foiled Paper to fit the openings in the scale pattern.
Affix these pieces to the backside of the card panel. Stamp sentiment onto a piece of vellum using Piano Black StazOn Pigment Ink. Tear away excess paper and affix this to the card using On Point Glue. Affix the card panel to a blue card base using Tear It! Tape.
