Magical Mermaid

Hi friends! Long time between blog posts, I know.  New Year's Resolution - get back into blogging! ;-)

I have attempted to set up my blog and email provider so that when I post to this blog, it will be emailed out to those on my newsletter email list. Fingers crossed it works! Hopefully this will be the first blog post that will be email out - if you're reading this post because you received it via email, please leave me a comment to let me know :-)

I shared this photo on my Facebook page but I know there are many of you who are not "on Facebook" so I hope you enjoy this post.

I made this Mermaid card recently for my friend's daughter's birthday. I really enjoyed making this card - I love heat embossing and I love mermaids! :-)

The Foil Frenzy Designer Paper gives plenty of shine and the heat embossing also adds some more shine.

Here's a close up to try to show you that shine a little better:

To create the copper doily, I patted my versamark ink pad all over the white doily, then covered it it Copper embossing powder and heated it until it melted.  I had to repeat the process in a couple of spots to get a nice, even coverage.  I love the way it turned out!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my mermaid card and I look forward to sharing lots more creations with you this year.

Love Bec.
