Purple Mermaid Wish Big Card

Hello and hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  It was a good time for me to catch up on a few things I've been wanting to do around the house.  We have been traveling a lot lately, and we finally have a couple months before our next trip.  It really makes me appreciate my home life.

For today, I would like to share a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge Blog: Anything Goes.

Since I've had such limited time for crafting, I made a fairly simple card.  I'm featuring Thessa from Lee Ann's World on Etsy.  I was going for monochrome so I created my background on 110lb white by putting down some copic ink on acetate and adding a bit of alcohol, then I flip the cardstock onto the acetate (I find this is cleaner than flipping the acetate onto the cardstock).  I made my background a bit too flat, so I dropped plain alcohol on the paper which made the water like effect.

My sentiment was made using individual alpha stamps and I messed up by not putting the "BIG" more in the right corner.  Well, I tried.  And overall, the card is still pretty cute IRL and I will send this along to a mermaid lover.

Join in this month if you get a chance.  Always a favorite challenge, and it runs for the entire month.

This meets the following challenges:  Through the Craft Room Door: Anything GoesGet Creative: Monochrome, Challenge Up Your Life: Vitamin Sea, and My Time to Craft: Seaside.

LOVE that background with your gorgeous mermaid. Your coloring is always awesome. Sometimes it is nice to be home. I just need a vacation. I have a trip scheduled at the end of the month, but it is to attend a funeral. Family obligation, but NO FUN!!!

I must get back to playing with inks like you did with the water I love all monochrome purple. Yup, what fun to travel and then there's no place like home. Go figure! PS I love any thing beachy and the water.
