Hey gill-friend card

I had such fun making this card for my best friend whom I miss terribly right now ..... from the ink blending and stamping to the die cutting and paint splattering.  I doubt that mermaids have gills but this still seemed like the perfect sentiment stamps from YNS - Sea Sentiments for this fun ocean themed card... well wait the fish have gills lol.
I cut the frame out of the card front itself then backed it with the ink blended and ink splattered background.  for the ink spattering i used my Tim Holtz distress marker spritzer held up to a paint brush of white acrylic paint.  I also did some light ink blending on the outer frame of the card front with the lightest blue.  I stamped the seaweed and coral directly onto the background before adhering.  I added the white frame into the inset.... then added another white frame on top of that.  For the adorable die cut Mermaid I had to re-cut the face portion by hand for it to be solid so I could stamp my own face instead of using the die cut one.  For the tail and accessories I used a very thin iridescent paper in light pink for the pearl necklace, dark pink for the top and flower and for the  tail I cut in a light iridescent blue then colored over with a spectrum noir marker to add the purple colors.  I added a lavender gem that I colored over with the same purple spectrum noir marker to the flower in her hair.
For the inside I cut another frame that I lightly inked with light blue ink.  I placed a light blue card stock that I stamped with more stamps from the same YNS stamp set - Sea Sentiments
I used 3 different shades of purple ink for the sentiments and stamped the anchor in black.
