Mermaid Kisses

Hi and welcome!  I'm back with another Fusion challenge and this time we're going with a summery theme, even though it's the depths of winter here 😄

For my card, I used a My Monthly Hero Kit from May, that was still NBUS!  I stamped several images onto X-Press It cardstock and colored them with Copics before die-cutting them.  Once they were all die-cut, I decided how I wanted them placed and then made a sea background for them using Distress Oxide inks.

I adhered all the images to the blended panel, popping up the mermaid and starfish on foam tape.  I backed that panel with some timber patterned paper offset at an angle and put it to one side while I worked on the rest of the card.

I created another Distress Oxide panel for the vertical strip and stamped the sentiment near the bottom.  On either side I adhered a thin sliver of the patterned paper and finally I added the image panel.

Thanks for visiting!  Head on over and check out the gorgeous cards made by the rest of the design team!

I'm linking this card up to the current challenge at The Heart Desires where I've used the nautical theme and tried to stick with the challenge colors.
