Mermaid Tails by Martha Lucia

Hello there!  Martha Lucia here with you!
I am super excited about my post today because this time I am featuring a new stamp set from Joy Clair using Rinea Foiled Paper, which I love to use together.

Mermaid at Heart is a new stamp set from Joy Clair that was released a week ago, and as soon as I received it, I knew I wanted to use it with Rinea Foiled Paper. My ideas were not clear, but I love the different shades that we can get using Rinea Foiled on stamped images. Let me share with you the process to create this card in easy steps:

The first thing that I did was stamp the Mermail Tail image from the Mermaid at Heart stamp set over different colors of Rinea Foiled Paper using Snowflake StazOn Pigment Ink. The colors of Rinea Foiled paper that I used were Fuchsia/Gold, Sapphire/Gold, Gold/Gold, and Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. I let the ink dry and fussy cut the images with scissors.

The next step was to create the faux watercolored background. I just colored my mat with the new Double Ended Markers from Leisure Arts. I used different tones of blue and sprayed the mat with Ink Potion No. 9. If you are not familiar with the Ink Potion No. 9, it is blending solution from Imagine that help the migration of any water-based ink or marker. I let the paper dry naturally and resized using the Making Waves Cover die from Mama Elephant. For the sentiment, I used Paris Dusk Memento Ink.

I paste the cover die with double-sided foam tape over the card base and splattered it with two different colors of Fireworks. Then, I arranged the foiled stamped images inside of the waves and decorated with some blue droplets.

Thank you for stopping by and remember that you can also stamp over the foiled paper, just experiment with different inks and different images to obtain an extraordinary effect.
