Happy Monday and July 1st! Stopping by to share my latest make for Reneabouquets.com. I created a second version Mermaid Card using products (list and links below) for my card.
Isn’t she beautiful? Renea’s Printed Beautiful Board is custom made by her and her husband and it is truly THE best chipboard I have ever worked with- it is thick and sturdy and as you can see, you can use gesso, distress inks, glitter and paint and it will not warp or break. The PRINTED Beautiful Board like the mermaid above, comes with an image printed on top and is as thick and sturdy as the unfinished chipboard. Here is a close up of the exquisitely detailed chipboard and printed chipboard pieces exclusive to Reneabouquets.com
I embellished the large Heart Deco Circle Chipboard with distress inks, glitter and gesso. I added Beautiful Bead Iridescent Pearls in the bead holes around the circle. On top, I foam-taped (to add dimension) the Printed Beautiful Board Mermaid. I cut apart the Elegant Accent leaf flourish and distress with sponge (Mermaid Lagoon, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks) and then adhered to card on the right side of the deco circle and above left top part of the card. I also sponged distress inks on cheesecloth and applied under the chipboard to which I added sequins, more pearls and glitter. The beautiful design papers are digital papers I print on a color printer from Raspberry Road Designs, “Ocean Breeze”. Here are some of the items I used from Renea’s online store- detailed list with links below collage.
