Through The Craft Room Door is one of the challenges I routinely enter. Last month I entered the birthday card I made for my mother and was delighted when it won. As a result of that win, I was asked to be a Guest Designer for this week's
The theme is always Always Anything Goes.
And this week's sponsor is
which created the beautiful digi image I have used
on this double easel fold card.
It is called Hello.
The mermaid was colored with pencils, which I blended with clear Wink of Stella to also add a bit of glitter.
But, I wanted more glitter.
So I heat embossed it with a powder from SNS called peppermint stick, which gave me shine and glitter.
I cut masks for both the mermaid and sea horses and then sponged the background with three colors of ink, before cutting the image with a stitched rectangle die.
The sea horses were fussy cut and popped. They received a coating of CTMH liquid glass to give them that great clear shine. Before die cutting the top layer of the 3 layer hello, I simply adhered a piece of gold foil to the purple paper.
Here are a two more photos from different angles.
The seaweed and anchor are cuts from the CTMH Flower Market Cricut cartridge. The sentiment, heat embossed with eggplant EP, is from Whimsy Stamps.
Finally, here is a peek at the inside of the card.
(I found this cute seahorse sticker in my stash
and couldn't resist adding him to the inside
along with a bit more seaweed.)
It was so nice of Through The Craft Room Door to invite me to share a card with you this week.
Thank you, Cara.

I have them in every color, and for the life of me can't remember their name. That should keep me awake tonight!)
