Welcome back ! I hope you have had a great weekend . I had a lovely time stamping with a friend , doing some baking and also had the pleasure of a visit form my grandaughter for dinner this evening .
I wanted to share my card I created for the emboss resist challenge . This was my first time using both my Magical Mermaid and Marbled background stamps !
I white heat embossed my background first and then added some colour with a small stamping block inked up and then spritzed with water . I used Marina Mist , Island Indigo and Emerald Envy . I was not done with the ocean background yet though . I took a retired Stampin ' Up ! mask and my embossing paste and added swirl like areas which I quickly covered in Dazzling Diamonds . I was pretty happy with the resulting sparkly sea I'd created . Next on to the mermaid , oh I forgot to mention I used Glossy White card stock for my background and for the mermaid . I silver embossed the mermaid and coloured her using Island Indigo , Powder Pink and Crushed Curry. Then I again opened up my jar of embossing paste , love that stuff , and carefully covered her body section and again added Dazzling Diamonds . I stamped some sea weed over the background , you can only just see it but its there ! More sea weed was stamped on a piece of glossy whit card stock I had first water coloured using Emerald Envy . I am really pleased with my first play with both of these sets ! Such fun !
