Richard Garay Designs July Card Club: Little Mermaid

Hello there inky friends!  Today I'm sharing a fun card created using the exclusive "Little Mermaid" stamp set from Richard Garay Designs.  This set is available in the July 2020 Card Club Kit.  Are you a Card Club member?  If you are, you know these exclusive kits come with a stamp set, digital files, four kitted card projects with directions and a live online playdate to complete your monthly cards.  The price for your monthly subscription is pretty awesome too, right?  $27.99 a month?!  Yeah!  The VIP perks are also fun too!

I decided to use a fun collection of images in this set to create my card.  Since there are several mermaids in this set, I had to decide which one to feature on my card.  I chose the "sitting" mermaid so that I could also provide her with a nice rock to sit on.  I colored all my images with Copic markers and what fun that was!  
I also worked on adding a fun background that would help create some dimension and depth to my card.  I used Media Mixer and Sweet Blue Sugar Drops reinker to create a fun watery/sky background and then used some Dazzling Pat to add sparkle. I fussy cut all my images and added foam squares to them so that I could mount them onto the card panel.
To create the "window", I used the Hexa Layers dies to create a little wonky window.  Cutting them a little off center and cock-eyed was intentional to help add to the whimsy of my card.
After assembling the card front, I mounted it onto Tangy Orange Sugar Stock (mounted wonky) and then attached it to a Sweet Blue card base.
