Mermaid Coffee

Happy Thursday, we’ve almost made it to Friday! Yeah!  I hope your week has been going well.  I’m over at the Shimmerz Paints Blog today with a fun mermaid coffee card perfect for summer.

I love coffee and have been playing along with the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop this month and so decided to combine my love of coffee and Shimmerz Paints to make this card. Shimmerz Paints is a Super Sponsor of the blog hop, click on the picture below for more information.

I started by making the background using watercolor paper and spraying the Vibez in Mustard Seed, Hermit the Frog, and Jeni B Bleu. I added a little extra water to get them to blend into a beautiful background.

I then stamped the Katzelkraft coffee cup and masked the edges so that I could add the Reverse Confetti mermaid. I used the same Vibez to watercolor the background of the cup and the mermaid, adding Vibez Sweet Heart for her tail outfit. I finished the cup of with some Zig Real Color Makers.

 

After my image was dry, I added re-traced the black lines to make them pop a little more. I also added white gel pen to her eyes and fin.

I cut the coffee cup out and added this fun mermaid paper I had in my stash. The design was inspired by Amy Tsuruta and this beautiful card. I love the way she incorporated the pattern paper and thought I would try it as well.

I used the sentiment that is part of the Reverse Confetti set and white heat embossed it on matching navy paper. I thought this mermaid would go perfectly with the Dotz Splish Splash set and added them to the card as fun embellishments. Aren’t they adorable?
