Hello! Welcome to the Ladybug Crafts Ink first ever Blog Hop!!
The blog hop is to celebrate the first projects made by the new Design Team over at Ladybug Crafts Ink. We have all been given the challenge of using the Mermaid Nikki image in any way we choose. I haven’t seen the other DT cards so are just as excited as you to see what they have come up with.
Here is my card.....
I decided that I wanted to keep this card elegant and uncluttered, well for me :-). I had bubbles going through my mind when I made it and so I used some really unusual ribbon, I love this stuff - it looks really organic, and a crystal/pearl swirl in shades of aqua, teal and crystal, although I did have to cut it about a bit to get it over the image which is on foam pads.
I've stamped Mermaid Nikki onto Neenah cardstock and coloured her with copics and cut her out on the cuttlebug. I've used the same die and a Mesh embossing folder to sit behind the image, and chalked it all up with chalk eyes, I've added some stickles to Nikki's eyeshadow, collar and sleeves, and given her little crystal earrings too :-) There's glossy accents on her shell and on all the bubbles. That sounds horribly complicated but this card went together so easily!!
Her tail has been stamped 8 times onto pearlescent vellum and layered up, leaving the edges slightly free, I've tried to show this in this photo, hope you can make it out!
Supplies: Mermaid Nikki; Blue and White Bazzill Bling; Bo Bunny Sophie Stripe and Double Dot papers; Pearlescent vellum; deckled rectangles Nestabilities; Mesh embossing folder; Copics; Diamond and Turquoise Stickles; Momento Tuxedo Black; Ice Blue and Blue Lagoon Color Box Chalk Eyes; Ribbon; Prima Say it in Pearls/Crystals - Blue
