Little Mermaid turned 16

Here is the card for today.

How I made the card?
The little mermaid on this card is hand drawn and colored using crayola crayons :-D. No markers and no stamping was involved. I stamped the white card stock with bubble clear stamps and blue, sea green and sky blue color ink pads both from Inkadinkado. I cut the waves from a pattern paper. I stuck a sea shell which was deformed, to look like a rock the mermaid is resting over. The sentiment is some stickers and the number is silver embossed.

Is something new?
Yes, I tried mixing up different shades of inks together while applying ink to the stamp. Hence the bubbles have different shades though they are stamped at once. For the number on the sentiment, I have used left overs from a sticker to make a pattern and then stamped the embossing ink. After embossing, I removed the stickers and it left a beautiful design and texture on the number as shown below.

My Favourite Things
I love doodling, colouring and card making. When I combine them all I enjoy the most. I enjoy stamping and embossing. My third favourite supply is ribbon. I have used them all on this card and this is one my favourites now :-D
