Not For The Timid

Good Morning Y'all!!! Now...if it's early for forwarned...this is NOT FOR THE TIMID ;) Here's another card that I've created for our awesome team at Smeared Ink!!
I've used the Carnies set - using the fantastically detailed Mermaid image. I started with an envelope from The Paper Source that has a little half moon cut out at the top. The texture of the paper is kind of a creamy, shimmery ivory. I stamped my first stamp "Freak Show" on the front...warning the reader of what's inside!! ;) It is stamped in VersaMagic Night Sky and heat set.
I did a postcard style card for this. My first layer is a scrap of DP that I had leftover from a retired SU! set. My next layer is Kraft cardstock followed by Navy blue cardstock. All seriously edge distressed and stitched together with a funky stitch that reminds me of the heart monitoring machine. Beep, beep, get my drift ;) (remember...this is a dark creation here people!)
I then took a piece of PTI white cardstock weighing in at 110 lbs. You need this weight paper to do what I was about to do. I took my Archival Multi-surface chalk VersaMagic Ink pad in Night sky and smooshed it all around...heavily. Everything was VERY inky. I then used my Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel in clear and coated everything TWICE. I then heat set it and watched the melty goodness display before me!!! So cool!!!
I then stamped my Carny Mermaid. I carefully colored her with my Copic markers and glittered up her tail with Doodlebug Sugar Coating Blue Jean Glitter. I made a band with the NOT FOR THE TIMID stamp that goes along with the set on Kraft cardstock and wrapped it around the main layer.
The back was so pretty and useful that I couldn't NOT embellish a bit!! I used a cool strip of DP that I had laying around for the bottom and used another stamp from the Carnies set "Friends Forever" punched out and matted with the next size circle punch.

I hope you've enjoyed my Not For The Timid Creation today!!!

Thanks as always for visiting!!!
