Magical Mermaid Watercolour Card

This week we had a special birthday, our grand daughter turned 7 and as soon as I saw the Magical Mermaid stamp set in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and I knew I had to use it for her birthday.

I started this card with a piece of Watercolor Paper and wet it heavily with clean water using our Aqua Painters and started building up layers of colour using Temping Turquoise Reinker for the water and both Crushed Curry and Sahara Sand Reinkers for the sand. Once this background was dry I added detail using the Magical Mermaid stamp set, stamping the seaweed in Wild Wasabi and Garden Green inks, sand detail in Sahara Sand ink and Tempting Turquoise ink for the water bubbles. Next I added a small amount of clean water over stamping to soften the images. Next stamped the both the sentiment and Mermaid in Veramark in on Watercolour Paper Gold heat embossing them and then colouring the mermaid using the following inks Crushed Curry - hair, Rose Red - hairband, Pink Pirouette - skin, Pacific Point and Garden Green for the tail, handcutting it out and adding it to the card front with both Mini and Stampin' Dimentionals. I matted the card front with Gold Foil Sheets onto a Sahara Sand card base.
