My Heart is Always by the Sea

#sarasherlock Mermaids of the Sea Much Love Sara Netting Cover Plate Paper Glaze Sara Sherlock

Hello!  It's Sara, from Much Love, Sara.   I used the new Paper Glaze Enhancer  on today's card.  The Enhancer makes the Glaze super silky, along with making the pearlized finish of the Glaze more matte.  It allows for a really smooth application as well.  I had the idea of playing with the change in finish to create a fun background, and today's card was the result.  

I began this card by spraying the back of the Mermaid Scales Stencil with Pixie Spray, and adhering it on top of a white card stock panel. On a mixing surface, I blended the new Paper Glaze Enhancer with Lime Zinnia Paper Glaze using a Spatula  I spread that over the stencil then added daubs of  Jade Vine Paper Glaze mixed with the enhancer and dragged that down to blend it in with the Lime.  To add a little contrast to the finish, I put a few small daubs of  Mint Hydrangea Paper Glaze without the Enhancer, so that it retained its pearlized finish. This gave the background it's variegated tone and finish.  I peeled off the stencil, and allowed the panel to dry. 


I die cut the Netting Cover Plate Die from vellum, along with die cutting a heart from aqua card stock.   I stamped images from the Mermaids of the Sea Stamp Set, in Black Hybrid Ink onto the aqua heat, and then stamped the sentiment in Versamark onto black cardstock.  I heat embossed the sentiment in white. 

Once the background panel was fully dry, I die cut it using the Slimline Nested Rectangle Dies Set.  Then, I layered the pieces together using liquid glue and foam tape, and adhered the card front to a white card base.  As a final touch, I added a few of the new Oceans of Green Gems to the card. 

I was so happy with this card when it was finished. I love the background with multiple tones and the fun texture.  I hope you enjoyed, and it inspires you to play with your Paper Glazes!  

Have a fantastic Tuesday!

Much Love,
