A Window Under the Sea

Hello and happy Wednesday!

I'm back with a colourful mermaid window card this week. It's been a long couple of weeks at work and I needed some colouring therapy, so this background gave me the perfect opportunity to sit down and escape for a while.

I started by stamping the sitting mermaid from the MFT Mermazing stamp set with some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid ink, creating a mask for her so I could stamp the rock underneath. I also masked the rock so I could stamp the MFT Wavy Coloring Book Background. I then spent a happy half an hour colouring it all in with my alcohol markers before trimming it down to A6 size.

To make the card base, I took a top folding A6 card base and adhered my coloured panel to the inside. I then used the second largest die from the MFT Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Dienamics to cut a window from the front of the card, making made sure to align this with the mermaid so she would be seen through the window. I adhered some acetate to the back of the front panel so I had a little window card looking through to an undersea grotto.

I cut out a few more circles of varying sizes and inked them up with colours that coordinated with my coloured background. I arranged them on the front panel so they looked a little like bubbles and stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Sea set.

Thanks for stopping by, see you next Wednesday.




  1. This is stunning. Didn't buy the mermaid set as I don't have young children anymore, but I'm seriously tempted now (to buy the set, not have more children!!!)

  2. Oh, what wonderful colouring! WOW !
