Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am back today with a brand new card where I not only mix coloring mediums, but also mix different releases. Today I have combine both an old stamp set and a new die set. I thought it would be really fun to take one of Joset’s recently released die sets and combined it with a separate older line stamp set. Together, the two, I think the the two make the perfect pair. I just love how fresh and fun Joset’s Mermaid die set looks with the Color My Flowers stamp set.
Step One: Die cut the Mermaid die set from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Using alcohol markers, color the different pieces of the Mermaid. I used my copics. Using Kids Choice Glue, assemble the pieces to make the mermaid.
Step Three: On a piece of watercolor paper, stamp the flowers and leaves from the Color My Flower stamp set around the edges using a watercolor safe ink. Float a few time the smallest flower in the middle of the cardstock.
Step Four: Using ECD’s new Watercolor Pallette, watercolor the background of the cardstock with Prussian Blue. Let dry.
Step Five: Using a combination of other watercolors, paint the flowers and leaves, keeping it light and pale.
Step Six: Stamp a sentiment from the Splish Splash Sentiments stamp set onto the card using black ink.
Step Seven: For some extra fun, adhere an action wobbler onto the back of the mermaid.
Step Eight: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the watercolor paper to an A2 card frame. Then adhere the action wobbler to the card frame.
I just love how much extra fun the wobbler adds to the card.
What do you think? Do you like how the old and the new combine to make a brand new look. Let me know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
