HOP - Mermaids!

HOP - Mermaids!

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to our blog, to our Hop. Our Mixed Media Team is using our Brutus Monroe products to make an projects with the June Inspiration Box - Magical Mermaids!!! If you have not seen them yet, hop over here to see them in our store


We hope that you find some inspiration in the projects our team put together.

To start this project hop along, BreAnn has created a project using our products to make her mermaid inspired card panel:

To start I took one of the card panels included in the the June Inspiration Box - Magical Mermaids and ink blended.  Next I stamped one of the mermaids included in the 6"x8" stamp set Magical Mermaids and colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out my image. I attached her to the image so that she looks like she is swimming out of the center.  To finish off my card panel  "Let's Shellebrate" was simply stamped and attached.  This card could not have been easier to complete.  And best of all in the kit one receives eight card panels with 2 of four designs that can be foiled, colored or left as they are for an CAS (clean and simple) card front.    




For our next inspirational post using mermaid items Jenn created a clean and simple card:

Hello! Today I have made a dimensional card using items from the June Inspiration Box - Magical Mermaids. ITo give this dimensional look I started by fussy cutting out shapes from the Sea Sparkle Paper Pad.  My base layer was one of the card panels from the box that was ink blended.  Next after stamping one of the mermaids from the 6"x8" stamp set, I colored and fussy cut her and a little fish friend out.  Using foam squares and glue to achieve a multilayered look. To finish my project off I added some sparkly gold paper was the final touch!

Happy Crafting!



This next project Nicole used our mermaids to create her project:

For this weeks project, the whale has stolen my heart from the 6"x8" stamp set June Inspiration Box - Magical Mermaids ! How cute is he?! How could he not be the focal point of my project?! I began using a white tag and painted a water background using Aqua Pigments in the colors Blue Green and Yellow, mixing the two to create different variations of teal, dropping in the pure Blue Green in some areas. While the background was drying, I painted the sandcastle using a mixture of Violet and Yellow and the adorable little whale with a mixture of Yellow and Red. Once all pieces were dry, I glued everything down, added water bubbles, the black seahorse, a white boarder around the whole tag and my sentiment. I absolutely LOVE how the background of this tag turned out! I will definitely be doing it again in the future!




Thank you for stopping by. Remember to "Create Your Own Ending" and keep creating!!!
