Whimsy June Release Day 2 - Seashells

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Saturday and the second day of the Whimsy Stamps June release!  My inspiration for you today is a card I made using the NEW Seashell Background stamp, New Let's Be Mermaids clear set and the Leaf Foliage 2 die set



I used 140lb mixed media paper for the background. I spritzed on different colors of mica shimmer spray, letting it dry between each application. Unfortunately the super nice shimmer can't be seen in the photograph. Then after it had dried completely and I was satisfied with my colors I used Versamark ink and stampe on the Seashell Background and embossed with white embossing powder.  My card base is 5.5 x 4.25 inches crosswise fold. First I added a black card stock layer to my card base (5.25 x 4 inches) and on top my seashell beackground in a slight angle. I cut the seashell background 1/8 of and inch smaller than the black cardstock layer.

I cut out two tags (from a discontinued Whimsy tag dies set) one from black cardstock and the other is a very nice sparkly shimmer paper in lime green that was included in the Whimsy March Paper Door kit. It fit the color of my background perfectly.

The sentiment is from the Let's Be Mermaids clear set  and was stamped with VersaMark ink onto the black tag and white heat embossed. I layered the two tags in a slight angle and used foam tape to attach them to my card. I then die cut some foliage leaves also from shimmer paper and added them, together with some flowers from my stash, to decorate the tags. As a last touch I added some sequins and enamel dots. The white enamel dots are handmade using Nuvo Crystal Drops Simply White.
