Passion for ProMarkers - week 61 challenge
This is my card for this week's Passion for ProMarkers challenge. The theme of this weeks challenge was to use 'distressing' on your card.
The stamps I used for this card are from the Summer Magnolia Stamp Club set.
I started by stamping Little Mermaid Tilda with a Memento ink pad. Using the masking technique I stamped the Seaweed around the Mermaid. I coloured in the image with ProMarkers. I added Stickles to the bubbles and Mermaid's tail to finish. I mounted this onto dark teal card.
I cut a large panel of the dark teal card for the main background. The circle paper is by DCWV.To keep with the distresses theme I tore the edges. Around the edges I used a sponge dauber, from Stampin' Up, and VersaFine sepia ink pad to add an aged distressed look.
I tore a strip of blue Whitewash Co'ordination paper. I screwed it up to and sanded it before adding it to the card. I stamped the Shells with VersaColor ink pad.
To finish I added a greeting by Craftwork Cards with foam pads. Around the edges of this I sponged the sepia colour.
