Don't we all love mermaids? How about baby mermaids? Here's a stunning Sweet Pea image from artist Conie Fong called Flowers on the Beach. Isn't she just adorable? I added a wonderful sentiment from and older set of Sweet Pea stamps "Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into. "
On this card I am using 2 shades of cardstock and some major punches! When I look at it now, it's almost hard to tell, which cardstock is the base color and which is the secondary. The orange color is the card, it was punch via a large border punch and then a green background color was put behind it, to add the green. Then on top of the card, I used the same green to layer my colored image. The card shows three layers of depth that way. It's a nice way to show some depth with out adding too much bulk (for example if you know you want to mail a card internationally and you know anything sticking out in the envy will get damaged). This type of card allows you to make wonderful layers and give height and make the item perfectly mailable without having to include it in a package. Just an idea!!
