It has been a whirlwind of a week but I managed to lock myself in my craft room for a bit to make this adorable little penny slider card. Let me say first that I am just completely obsessed with digital papers. I am so thankful that I found Polkadoodles and super lucky that they have such a vast variety of digital papers. I could (and have) spent hours on their site just looking at all the amazing goodies that can be found there.
Step one for me was picking out which digi papers to use. I finally settled on these: This one for the larger outside and This one for my inside with the HI Sentiment printed on top. I ran my paper through my gemini and using my multimedia nesting circle dies I created my base for the penny slider. I then trimmed the paper to fit on my card base. I then colored my mermaid with my Prismacolor pencils. I trimmed her out by hand.
I used distress paint around the edge of my card. Then I put some gesso and stuck down some white stones. Then I went around the border with gunmetal sparkle medium. I also used the paste around the smaller circle in the middle. Once all had dried I mounted the outside of the card with foam tape. Then I added a double layer of foam to my mermaid and her penny then set her aside. I placed the center circle with foam tape and slide my mermaid in. I put a little more sparkle texture on a rose and placed it in the corner.
