MFT July Release Countdown Day 1

Welcome back the last day of the MFT July Release countdown! We’re less than 24 hours before the release. Are you excited? I have some more summer themed fun for you today featuring a set called Mermaid For Each Other.

I stamped these mermaids and friends in Milk Chocolate hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers. I love that these images were large and easier to color. I used the matching Die-namics to die cut the images out and set it aside for the next step.

I decided to go with a simple layout but also wanted to match the fun, playful look of these girls so I heat embossed the background with Whimsical Waves Background in white and ink blended across it from the left edge. I faded it out as blended towards to right and used the same inks to add a touch of splatter.

I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto Coral Crush card stock. It matched my crabs very well. Then I used the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips to get those lovely stitching on it. All images were added last with foam tape.

See you tomorrow for one last inspiration for 08the July Release!
