Making Way For Santa

Good morning from Pam in South Carolina ~ It's my turn on the Whimsy Blog today ~ and I've selected Crissy Armstrong's Christmas Mermaid Digital image to make a Shaker Card with an  underwater scene for her.

Here's my completed project and the directions so hopefully you can make your own for the upcoming season. 

First I did several background choices, using a open bubble stamp with different shades of oxide inks stamped onto navy blue paper and sat those aside to dry.  I used an under the sea window die on a wave embossed paper and by using the DIGITAL image, it allowed me to size the Christmas Mermaid to fit exactly into the opening.    After printing the image, I hand drew in the scales,  Copic colored, and then fussy cut her out. To add a little extra bling, I covered her tail fin with silver sequins and added several clear flat back bubbles and the red starfish.  For the shaker addition I used light blue seed beads.  Once sandwiched all together and I finished the top by coloring the sea weed and adding the banner 'Make way for Santa'  Now Christmas Mermaid is ready for mailing or decorating my home. 

I hope you will check out all the products on Whimsy Stamps, especially the Digital Products.
