Mermaid Kisses

Today starts a new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations and the color theme is orange, teal and white.

This week’s sponsor is Inspired by Stamping and they are generously offering a $15 gift certificate to our randomly chosen winner! Thank you so much Joanna!

Orange is not my favorite color so I really had to ponder ideas for this theme. I kept going back to an art journal layout. I usually design my LO’s in Photoshop Elements prior to creating on paper, but this time I liked the digital version so much I opted to skip the paper replication!

I wanted a mermaid on my LO, so I started out with a black and white photo.

I added a few elements from Club Scrap’s Lagoon kit to turn her into a mermaid.

Hetty Sanders inspired the theme of my LO when she sent me an emoji of a mermaid in a martini glass. My ideas just started flowing and this was the final result!

(All elements used will be listed in the supplies list at the end of this post.)

Since I was on a creative roll, I made a shadow box card and an ATC using the color theme.


I added a wobble to the shadow box clownfish. I ♥ action wobbles!
