Down by the Sea-Mermaid Card Mania with Kathi

Hello BoBunny Friends!  It's Kathi here today to share with you three
 nautical themed cards I created, each card is 6" x 6".  Here we go! 

Card #1

Card #1 
I layered two of the papers after distressing the edges with chalking ink,  I used glitter paste sea-foam on a piece of sea shells chipboard using gold confetti paste to embed the shells in sand.  The sea shells and crab was cut out of paper to make them stand out.  Then, I placed a chipboard sentiment on the top of the card.  I love how this turned out.  The Confetti paste was my favorite part. look at the chunky sparkle!

Card # 2

I had fun using the Ever After die to create  the sea weed in which the seahorses are swimming. I used a die from my stash to cut the large seahorse to go along with the chipboard seahorse. Adding a chipboard sentiment "Take me to the Ocean" to finish off the card.

Card #3

Card # 3 has layers and layers of paper from the Down by the Sea paper line.  I wanted some extra texture, so I crackle painted the middle layer. I had a fun Sun chipboard that I used the crackle primer on then used the two component Pentart crackle paint system. The color of step #2 of the crackle system is a Victorian Pink. I then cut out "Let's Be Mermaids" out of one of the 12x12 papers and layered it over the sun. I think it looks like some crazy floating sea kelp or even an octopus.  I then cut out sea life and mermaids from the paper line and used the "Ever After" die to cut the seaweed, then layered a chipboard sentiment below the seaweed and added Pearlescents to the sea-life and glitter paste to the mermaids.

Come back and see us soon!
