Little Mermaiden Agenda

Today I’m sharing a card featuring the fabulous Little Mermaiden Agenda from Mama Elephant. I created a underwater scene, adapting another set from Mama Elephant for one of the scene elements.

I began with the background. I die cut the Mama Elephant Hillside Cover die from white card, masked off the border, then added a blend of distress oxide ink. I used picked raspberry, wilted violet, broken china and peacock feathers for the ocean. For the sea bed, I used antique linen and frayed burlap.

I flicked the background to get some droplet texture, and added some more texture to the sand bank by adding dots of brown alcohol marker ink.

Mama Elephant have some other sea sets which would work really well with the mermaids. As I don’t have these, I decided to create some sea grass myself by drawing on card with my alcohol markers. I trimmed them out and adhered them to the scene.

Next, I stamped and coloured some Little Mermaiden Agenda images. I had fun using different colours for their hair. Can you spot Ariel and Flounder? 

I had an idea to create a large clam shell for the mermaids to sit in - a bit like the opening scene of Ariel's sisters singing in The Little Mermaid. To create my shell, I used the oval and circle frames from Little Agenda Frames. I coloured the frames to look like a shell, trimming the bottom off the circle frame before adhering on top of the oval frame. 

I added two of the mermaids on to the shell with foam tape, making sure to hide the edges where the frames meet. 

I adhered the shell and mermaids to my card, using foam tape for dimension. I then added some tone on tone stamped fish to the background, using the two small fish included in Little Mermaiden Agenda

I finished with a stamped sentiment from the Mama Elephant Birthday Messages stamp set, some white and glitter gel pen accents, and some clear jewels for bubbles.

Have a lovely day,
