I got my hands on the new Mermaid for You stamp set. I am still really enjoying using the Say Cheese die as well, so I combined the two.

A close up of the tone on tone stamping
Size: Vertical side fold 5×7 card
Extra Details: I started by stamping and water coloring the images from the Mermaid for You stamp set. I used my Distress Inks to water color. Once dry, I fussy cut all the images out. I die cut a Polaroid frame from water color paper. I ink blended some Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink on the inside square, and then adhered the mermaid images on to the square. As I was playing around with the placement of the frame, I decided that background needed something. I opted for a tone on tone stamping so as not to distract from the main images. I used more images from the Mermaid for You stamp set. After adhering the frame and inside square, I added a die cut Thanks. I colored the Thanks with some Salty Ocean Distress Ink.
