Mermazing cards

Hello :)  I've been taking part in the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge and I'm pretty pleased to say that I've actually spent time in my craft room colouring EVERY day.  Some days it has literally been for about 15 minutes but most days I've been able to squirrel away a bit more time... which makes me a very happy crafter!  You can see my latest colouring creations in the Instagram shortcut - side bar on the right.

I haven't just been colouring though... I've actually been using some of the images to make cards and today I've got two cards to share with you featuring MFT stamps Mermazing stamp & die set.

The first card is for one of Michael's nieces who is about to turn 21.  I used MFT's Mermaid Tail background stamp and distress inks to create a background (with wonky edges - such a cool technique) and then added the images to the front of the card.

The second card I created was another commission card.  This time it was for my friends Goddaughter who is going to be celebrating her 12th birthday soon.  When I asked my friend if she thought her Goddaughter would like a mermaid theme she was ecstatic because her Goddaughter is hoping to become a marine biologist when she gets older... how perfect is that???  Here's the card:

The background of this card was created using MFT's Whimsical Waves stamp and Distress Inks.  I really like the little white dot detail on the mermaid and the fish swimming in the water.

Thanks so much for visiting my little corner of the universe :)
