Double embossed mermaid
I wanted to show you this card more because of the technique. I think it's a great technique using your nestabilities and embossingfolders. The whole card is made just from one layer of cardstock. As you can see the only embossed parts are around the mermaid, leaving the middle for stamping. I used Elaine Cox's little jasmine mermaid from sheet 6 plate 48.
I inked the embossed text with blue ink to make it stand out more. The mermaid is stamped with the same ink and coloured with promarkers. I originally stamped her with versamerk and then added chalk, but it didn't look right, so I stamped again with blue ink. That's why it looks like her lipstick is smeared out if you look closely ;)
Yes, (gasp) I make mistakes too that I try to cover up, lol.
I hope this card at least gave you some inspiration and a new way of thinking about your sweetpea stamps. So what are you still doing in front of your computer - off you go and STAMP!
