I used Yupo paper and Alcohol Inks in various blues and greens and I created the ocean like background. You get different effects each time. So I start with the background and then decide what to do with it. This card was my first attempt. I was inspired by a blog post by Jessica Frost-Ballas called Making Waves with Jessica Frost-Ballas.
I used alcohol markers for the mermaid, fish and shell. I used Distress Inks for the sea grass. The stamps are from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero – May 2017. I used Nuvo drops for the pearl.
I used a new method that I learned from a video “Video Monday With Nina Marie/Shaker Cards 3 ways. Using two panels of acetate instead of just one which makes it easier to line up without the shaker material falling out. I like this method. I will be posting another card using this method in the future.
On this card, because of the size of the sequins and the objects on the background, I should have used two layers of foam tape between the two layers of acetate so the sequins would move more freely.
