Here’s a fabulous project created by our designer Rowena.

For today’s project I created a fun and simple watery background using one of the latest stamp from the new release ‘Mermaid For Each Other’ and coordinating die.

For my background I blended peacock feathers and blueprint sketch distress inks (its my go to colours when creating anything watery background) onto a watercolor paper. I spritzed some clean water to move the colour around, to create a loose watercolor look. Then dried it immediately using a heat tool. I did this a couple of times and drying it in between. I also splattered some clean water and with a paper towel picked up some of the excess  water(after 30 seconds) to create a distress look.  I also added some white paint and perfect pearls for added details to my watery background.  I trimmed my background using the largest rectangle from the ‘Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames‘ creative die. I coloured my images with copic markers and die cut them using its coordinating dies. I also die cut some hearts using red cardstock and added some glossy accent to the die cut hearts.  I stamped my sentiment in black and that finishes my card for today.
