Mermaid Trio

Hello my friends and welcome back.  Today I have three cards made using the Mermazing stamp set from MFT Stamps.

I tired something different and used some fun colours for the mermaid's hair. I am so in love with these three.

For all three of my cards, I used the technique that Donna Mikasa showed on her blog, 3 Umbrellas.  Instead of using the Post It tape that she used, I used 1 1/2" Painter's tape that I carefully ripped in half to mask off the edges of the card stock panels.

Here is the first card, where the tape was ripped and placed very unevenly.  I think I perfected the technique on the second and third card.

Below is a list of the supplies I used.
