Happy Monday everyone! The Greeting Farm just release 4 brand new stamp sets for the month of July, and once again they are awesome! This card features MERMAID KISSES and MERMAID GROTTO! I love how these two sets come together to make the perfect underwater scene.
I recommend purchasing the coordinating dies for these two sets. It definitely makes assembly of the card much easier when you don't have to hand-cut each little mermaid. For the Grotto, I used a craft knife to cut out the inside so I could attach vellum with the stamped sentiment. I colored the back of the vellum with Copic BG10 and BG13 after I stamped the sentiment which caused the ink to smear a bit. Next time, I would color the vellum first, let it dry and then stamp the sentiment.

To create the water and sand I used Copic Alcohol Refills on YUPO paper. The inks glide and spread across the paper in beautiful patterns based on the different techniques you use. It's really fascinating to watch.
