Mermaid Card

I used a rubber stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps called An Ordinary Summer Day by Ching Chou Kuik for this card. The background paper was created with the embossing machine and paint. I distressed the pieces with brown ink and silver paint. The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Embossing Arts and the frame is from Limited Edition. The card is embellished with glitter and two star fish.
