Pretty Mermaid Card Using Foursquare Decorative Mask for Colour INKspiration Challenge #145

Hello everybody!
Welcome to my blog. It’s time for another Colour INKspiration Challenge. What I fun inspiration picture we have for you that features Lemon Lime Twist (so happy this colour is back!), Tahitian Tide, and Blueberry Bushel.

Here’s my project for this challenge:

[All supplies used in this project are shown at the end of this post and are linked to my Stampin’ Up! online store. You can purchase them and create this project too! Thank you for your support of my stamping adventure]

Card Details:

  • Card Base: Basic White Thick
  • Card Front: Basic Black (10.5 x 14.85 cm and 10.5 x 2cm), Basic White (10.5 x approximately 4 cm), Lemon Lime Twist (quarter sheet), Tahitian Tide (quarter sheet), and Blueberry Bushel (quarter sheet)
  • Card Insert: Basic White (10 x 14.35 cm)
  • Using a Blending Brush with Whisper White Craft ink add some texture with the Foursquare Decorative Mask to the Lemon Lime Twist, Tahitian Tide, and Blueberry Bushel card stock. Use a different mask on each colour cardstock. Set aside to dry.
  • Once dry use a 1″ circle punch (or die) to cut out circles from each of the three sheets.
  • Take the large Basic Black card front and add a strip of Tear & Tape adhesive about 2cm above from the bottom edge and place down four circles so that they just touch the bottom of the cardstock and sit side by side.
  • Add another strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive just above the circles and add the next row of circles placing them to sit over the top of the join of the first row. Place the colour that hasn’t been used in the two that you’re overlapping in the row below. This row will have the end ones handing off the edge of the card front.
  • Continue till you have about 7 rows completed.
  • Trim off the ends that are hanging over the edge.
  • Adhere a strip of the Tahitian Tide Metallic Woven Ribbon over the small Basic Back card front piece. TIP: Add a strip of Tear & Tape on either side on the back. Attach the end of the ribbon to this and then pull over the front, fold back and attach the other end. Adhere this to the card front to cover the top of the last row of circles.
  • Stamp your sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink on the bottom left corner of the Back White card piece. Adhere to the card front and trim off any excess off the top.
  • Adhere the mermaid scales card front to the card base.
