Ellen Hutson – Inner Mermaid

The new Ellen Hutson Release is available right now!  I’ve made two cards for today – one that is interactive!  I had only planned on making one and decided it wasn’t me – I pushed myself to combine products that weren’t meant to go together and disappointed myself.  So I made another – more true to my style as a cardmaker.  Let’s share that first, shall we?

EH Inner Mermaid

I stamped, embossed the images in gold sparkle embossing powder, and watercolored these images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  This Inner Mermaid stamp set is wonderful!  I love the addition of the shells and starfish.  Once colored, I die-cut them using the Inner Mermaid coordinating dies.

Zig Colors used:  042 Turquoise Green, 021 Light Carmine, 003 Flamingo Pink, 220 Tea Rose, 082 Purple

EH Inner Mermaid 1

For the background, I die-cut some waves and used them as a stencil and ink blended with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  Then I die cut this using a scalloped frame die from Mama Elephant.  I embossed the sentiment in white on black paper and arranged all the pieces using foam tape and finished it off with some iridescent sequins.

Alright, you guys…here’s my first card that I am still questioning.  The new release includes Rainbow Slider dies for an interactive card and I really wanted to use it.

EH Inner Mermaid + Rainbow 1

I know I’m hard on myself – and self-doubt gets the better of us – so I feel better about making another, but lets talk about this!  I embossed and colored the images the same way I did on the first card I shared.  But everything else i did on this card was using Copics.  The colors are a bit bright for me (C0, 0, RV13, Y00, YG11, B00, B000, BV000).

EH Inner Mermaid + Rainbow 2

After putting the slider portion together, I adhere the images to the card front.

EH Inner Mermaid + Rainbow 3

The rainbow slides up!  So fun – I decided to add some clouds underneath it also.  You’re probably wondering WHY I didn’t like this card.  I don’t know!  The colors are bright…and I know a 5 year old would LOVE it.  I just didn’t want to be the 5 year old making this card, I guess?  I’m sorry – I totally hated on myself for this card.  I will get over it!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
