Mermaid Hair Don't Care

 Good morning!  Today I am sharing a fun mermaid themed card with you!
I started by blending Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, and Faded Jeans onto Canson XL watercolor paper.  
 I die cut the outside with a GMD stitched rectangle die.  I also centered a smaller rectangle and die cut the center out of the paper.  On that small area, I stamped a GMD Mermaid Words Stamp with VersaFine Onyx Black.  I die cut the outer rectangle area into strips with GMD stitched cloud border dies.  I inked the edges of those cuts with Black Soot Distress Ink.
 I created the shaker with acetate and a frame created by using GMD stitched rectangle dies and a GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die.  The outer area is popped up with foam tape.  I used several different sequins inside the shaker.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
