I decided to make a zig zag card using the new Mermaid Kisses stamp set. I loved glamming up this pretty mermaid and making the shells.

I used Magic Speckle embossing powder EP175 on the shells. This powder certainly makes them look realistic.

I also used the Magic Speckle embossing powder on the rock that the mermaid is sitting on and I used Fiery Fushia glitter G1004 for her suit.

Here is the card completely open. If you would like to see full instructions on this card you can click here.

Three Winners (one for each new stamp set) will be selected by Random.org during the Designers Mystery Party. Winners will also get to choose one Glitter and one Embossing Powder to go with their new stamp set.

April, I am so enjoying seeing what the different DT's are doing with this lovely image. Each of you has interpreted it so very differently but yet each is so unique. I love the glitz you achieved on this beautiful mermaid, and your shells were so glossy - just like the real things. Gotta get some of this product! Loved your Z-fold too, with the teasing little Miss perched at the very top. Great design. TFS & Hugs.

Shirley said...

OMGosh, April, this is just to pretty! I love the fold, the pearl trim and your shell!!! Those shells are to die for!! I like every detail!
