Crafty Secrets - Little Sea Star - NEW Mermaids Stamp Set

For today's card I used the NEW Mermaids stamp set from Crafty Secrets. This set is filled with beautiful mermaids, sea shells and sea horse images and eight sentiments to complete the set.Here is the card I created using this adorable little mermaid image.I started by stamping the image of the mermaid with brown ink and then I used the Wizard™ and Labels Six S4-230 die template from Spellbinders™ to make a die cut. All of the coloring was done using Copic markers and the airbrush system. I stamped the image of the mermaid onto some printer paper and cut out the image to use as a mask. I placed the cut out on top of the image creating a mask and then I was able to airbrush over the image. To create the clouds I used the Copic colorless blending pen. Once all of the coloring was finished I misted the entire piece with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. For the background paper I used the Wizard™ and the Circles Impressabilities™ I2-1005 to emboss the cardstock and before removing the Impressability™ I misted over the entire piece with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. The sentiment was stamped using black ink and then I made a die cut tag using the Wizard™ and Fancy Tags S4-235 die template from Spellbinders™. Then I added color to the tag by airbrushing. I added some pom-pom trim along the bottom and I also added a shell and pearl cluster. Here is a close-up of the shell and pearl cluster. To finish off the card I added some Waterfall (blue) and Shell Pink glitter from Sparkle-n-Sprinkle to the image of the mermaid and I also added some tiny rhinestones and pearls on the card.
