Magical Mer-maid friends in action!!!

Hello, all!

 Are you all ready for the fun style interactive magnetic card in action!!!!!!
Who doesn't love the technique that seems magical? Today I will show you how I created my moving Mer-maid friends!!!

"Make a wish and hold on tight
There's  magic in the air tonight
And anything can happen........!"

I made a Birthday card for a very special friend and she is fond of Mermaids. So I decided to play with Mudra's latest fun Mermaid stamp set having such cute sentiments, pretty images and some more cute sea creatures, plants too!

I stamped the mermaid images and all other sea images in Black Archival ink on a white Bielo smooth white watercolor CS. Then used my Zig markers to watercolor them all. Fussy cut them all and I decorated the mermaid body and tail with some different colors and sizes sequins Isn't the mermaids looking gorgeous!!!

I showed in a pic how I placed my magnet at the backside.

Now for my card base panel, I used my Tonic trimmer and cut a heavy white CS.   Embossed the edges of my card base. Using Big Splash Border and stitched scallop edges, die cut more panels to create the scene. My base is blended with some distress inks. The middle layer is also blended with distress inks and then misted with water. And the top layer is blended with Copics and Promarkers to create the underwater scene. I die cut some sea grass too using ink smooshing technique. Die cut the sun too!

I popped up the middle layer using 3 layers of white foam because I wanted more depth and then adhered the first layer.

Now for the interactive magic mermaids, I wanted their movement to look like 3D effects. So I went with magnetic technique. I placed a magnet on all my 3 mermaids at their backside and placed one magnet under the shell too. You can move the magnet around inside the card easily to play with those pretty mermaids in action!

Now I stamped the fun sentiments using black archival ink. For more fun and textures I embellished my underwater scene with some real sea shells, plastic starfishes!
I created the matching scene inside too to play with my fun mermaid friends!

Here are my you tube link ups:

Hope you all enjoyed the magical movement of mermaids!!!
