Hello friends! Happy Independence Day to those of us in the United States! Today we're celebrating a different holiday though with our newest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Christmas in July! For this card, I wanted to incorporate the beachy, summery vibes I'm feeling right now, so I decided to do a Little Mermaid theme by combining images from Mermaid for You and Christmas Fishes. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.
For my background, I blended Distress Oxide Inks onto two panels of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. For the sea, I used Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover, and Pine Needles. For the sand, Antique Linen, and Gathered Twigs. Then I splattered both with gold paint using the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors. I die cut the sea with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and the Stitched Ripple Backdrop, and the sand with the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders.
I adhered the backgrounds to a Barn Red card base, then stamped a sentiment with Lobster Ink and trimmed that down with an Everyday Sentiment Banner. I glued my images onto the scene, and then to give it even more detail, stamped bubbles into the sea with Noble Fir Ink. Then to finish things off, I added a bit of sparkle with Stardust Stickles.
