Mermaid For Each Other - MFTWSC338

Hello my friends and welcome back.  It's the first week of summer and the weather has been beautiful lately!

I finally made another card.  This time using the sketch from MFT Card Challenges.

Instead of using the heart on my card, I used a mermaid and fish from the Birdie Brown - Mermazing stamp set from MFT Stamps.

I created the background by using the Radiating Rays stencil from MFT Stamps and Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks.  I first taped the white card stock panel down to a board, so it wouldn't move, then I laid the stencil over the panel and taped that to the board as well.  I inked up the top half of the panel with Broken China, using an ink blending tool, and the bottom half of the panel with Cracked Pistachio.  I then lifted up the stencil and inked over the remaining white portion, lightly with both inks.  I then generously sprayed the back of the stencil with water and placed it back down on to the inked panel, which gave the background a more distressed and scattered look.

I coloured the mermaid and fish with Copic markers and added them to the front of the card and added a few drops of the Morning Dew Crystal Drops from Nuvo as the finishing touch.

Here is the finished card.
