On the incentive trip we can join a Stampin’ Up! organised swap we make 26 cards and receive 26 in return, I knew that I wanted to use the Magical Mermaid stamp set.  I always love taking part in this swap because of the fabulous ideas you get.

So here is the swap I made.

Of course I used lots of different elements and it was messy ! I started out with stamping of the bubbles and the seaweed using Emerald Envy Ink.

Then came the messy part, embossing paste, coloured with Bermuda Bay and pool Party re-inkers, applied with gloves!

You can see the texture I got here.

I then added Dazzling Diamonds and sequins.

The card was finished off with a Water coloured Mermaid on Shimmery white card that I fussy cut and a punched sentiment layered on silver card. Phew, it took some time but I really liked the finished effect and I love working with the embossing paste.
