What do you get when you cross the Lagoon stamps with the holidays? Some festive mermaid holiday cards!
Mermaid Holiday Cards
Stamp the mermaid and starfish images onto plain white paper. Color the images with pencils and markers and add a touch of sparkle with coordinating glitter glues. Fussy cut the images with scissors. Finally, die cut a coral Christmas tree from Serengeti Lt. Green paper distressed with a variety of green inks.
Add bubbles to a Sea Breeze Pale Blue panel with White Pigment ink.
Dust the wet ink with Perfect Pearls (Pearl) powder. Buff with a soft dry cloth.
Stamp the starfish image around the perimeter of the Pale Green card base with Leaf Ink.
Add the Holiday Mail sentiment to the Pale Blue panel with Spruce Hybrid Ink.
Adhere the coral Christmas tree and starfish to the panel with Bookbinding Glue. Attach the mermaid with foam adhesive squares.
Let's take a look at the finished card.
Here is another card created with some of the same techniques. I paired the Lagoon mermaid with a Christmas Thyme (2016) wreath, Shades of Winter (2016) snowflake, and Holiday Mail sentiment.
Sometimes it is fun to see your stamps in a whole new way. Have fun experimenting with all sorts of mash-ups!
