You Are Mermazing - My Favorite Things

Hello crafty friends!  I'd like to share one more card that I made for the current MFT Weekly Sketch and Color Challenge.  This time, I went with a mermaid theme.  I don't know about you, but I am so ready for this winter to be over.  I thought these mermaids were a fun reminder that warmer weather is on the way.

I used the super cute BB Mermazing Stamp Set.  I stamped my images onto smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images with my Copics.  For the mermaid tail- patterned background, I stamped the BG Mermaid Tail Background Stamp with clear VersaMark Ink onto smooth white card stock and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.  I then blended Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks over top of the embossed paper and then trimmed it down to 4"x5.25".  For the layout of my card, I followed the Sketch and Color Challenge Combo shown below.

For the heart in the center, I used the MFT Die-namics Stitched Heart STAX.  For my sentiment, I heat embossed it with Super Fine White Embossing Powder and then die cut it using the MFT Die-namics Stitched Sentiment Strips.

I attached my mermaids to both the front of the card with both adhesive and some foam adhesive squares to give some added dimension.  Lastly, I stamped a few goldfish swimming in the background.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
