Be Mermazing Watercolor Cards | Not 2 Shabby Shop June Release

Hello my friends, Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far! I’m having fun creating summer cards, and today I’m using a stamp sets from the Not 2 Shabby Shop’s June release. This set is called, “Be Mermazing,” and it’s filled with the cutest underwater creatures as well as the prettiest mermaid.

I created two wreath cards with this set, and I used two different watercolor mediums to color them in as well as the backgrounds.

I also have a 10% off coupon code for you from the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10

Card 1: Underwater Wreath Card

For my first card I stamped out all the images with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and then heat embossed them with Clear embossing powder. The paper I used was Stonehenge hotpress watercolor paper. To color in these images I used some liquid watercolors–Dr. Ph Martin watercolor. This was my first time using these watercolors, and I really enjoyed using them–they are vibrant and beautiful.

The raised lines of my heat embossed images made watercoloring them fast and easy. I had so much paint left over in my butcher’s tray that I decided to create some backgrounds with it. I dipped a watercolor paper panel into the blue and green and purple paint, and it turned out with a smooth, marbled look. I was able to use this panel for both cards.

Card 2: Mermaid & Pearls Shaker Card

On card #2 I stamped out the pearls and shells image out several times. I wanted to create a shaker window with this single image. Again I heat embossed the images, but this time I colored them in with some Zig Real Brush Pens.

I fussy cut out all the images and glued the pearls and shells together to create a circle. I then glued on a panel of acetate and popped it up with a double layer of foam adhesive. I used a lot of clear confetti pieces inside the shaker. I also popped up the mermaid on the outside to match the height of the shaker window.

Below is the process video. I hope you enjoy it!
