TOO CUTE CHRISTMAS FISHES BUNDLE - HOLIDAY BY POLKADOODLES -- SEPTEMBER 6, 2022

 Hello and welcome back to my blog!  It's Tuesday, which means the start of a new challenge at Digi Choosday!  The DT theme this week is MAGICAL/FANTASY, and I chose to make a card using the mermaid from the Too Cute Christmas Fishes Colour Bundle:

I endeavored to make a fantastical scene for this pretty pre-colored mermaid, so I found a digital paper that reminded me of the ocean for my background.  Then I die cut two Stitched Hillside Borders from Lawn Fawn from white scraps and blended Antique Linen oxide ink all over both pieces with a blending brush.  Then I came in with Brushed Corduroy around the edges.  I smooshed each ink onto a stamp block and added water, then splattered both hills with a small paint brush.  I felt I needed more contrast, so I brought in Ground Espresso also.  While they dried for a bit, I adhered the blue patterned paper to the card base with glue, leaving a nice white border.  The back hill was also adhered down flat to the patterned paper, while the front hill was popped up on foam tape.  All of the colored pieces of sea vegetation come from the Silhouette Store.  All of those were glued down flat except for the green one on the left, where I added foam tape behind the top part of it to keep it even.  The mermaid and her attached bits of scenery were attached with foam tape also.  The sentiment comes from the MFT Mermazing stamp set and was stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink using my MISTI.
