The Library Challenge - The Little Mermaid

The new Library Challenge  is The Little Mermaid so I thought outside the box  made two mermaid cards! Obvs.

For the first one I cut out a mermaid's tail on the Silhouette and added scales using a stencil and Cosmic Shimmer gilding polish.  I stamped the circles/text stamp onto an alcohol ink background and added pearl shimmer powder.

I'd like to enter this card into:

Cut it Up under the sea
Mix it Up  
Cas Mix Up 

For my second card I  stamped the mermaid, masked her and stamped the bell jar (Hunkydory) . The fish and sentiment came from various sets. I added some clear glossy drops.

I'd like to enter this one into:
Creatalicious no patterned paper
Through the Purple Haze marine

The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen and illustrated by Christian Birmingham. Love this story too! Again, very sad though, definitely does not have a Disney ending

Now, that's clever, showing only the mermaid's tail! I love it! The second card is cute, too -- a two-fer!!

Thanks for sharing with us at Cut it Up for our Under the Sea challenge!

Wow what a stunning first card. Love the mix of the alcohol inks, the stamping and stencilling. Fun idea with the mermaid tail and never thought to stamp on top of alcohol inks and then to add the pearl shimmer powder.....Thank you for the inspiration as I will be filing that one away x Such an adorable second card and love that cute mermaid that you masked and popped into the bell jar. Both cards are gorgeous but the first mixed media card is outstanding and thank you for adding this beauty to the gallery and joining in the fun CAS Mix Up Challenge x

WOW! That first card is AMAZING, Marina! LOVE the gorgeous deep colours of your alcohol ink background. It's made even more beautiful with your stamped circles and pearl shimmer. The mermaid tail is gorgeous with the shimmer embossing paste. Fantastic card. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

Your second card is so sweet with the adorable mermaid inside the glass jar. Cute scene with all the underwater critters.

Your second card has a style I’m familiar with, traditional make, very sweet. But your first one was impossible for me to spot how you went about to make. It’s original and looks amazing.
