Mermaid Kisses and Starfish Wishes

Hello! This mermaid theme card was created using a couple of fun techniques and some stamps from Gina Marie Designs.  I used several different Distress Oxide Inks for the background of my card and splashed it with some water. The same technique was used on the tag.  Next, I ran the base of my card through my Big Shot using the Darice Beach Waves embossing folder.
The stars were stamped with the Beach Layered Sea Shells Stamp Set and I simply heat embossed the top layer with gold embossing powder.  I also heat embossed the sentiment on the tag which was stamped from the Mermaid Words Stamp Set.  A few scattered sequins added a whimsical element to my card.  Some Wink of Stella along the waves created a subtle yet sparkly effect.  A bit of Totally Pink Trendy Twine was the finishing touch on my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
