The color palette at the Ellen Hutson July Color Trend Challenge: Quietude just screams Mermaid ...
so of course, I created with a Pineapple. I couldn't resist inking-up my neglected Essentials by Ellen Stay Golden Stamp set in these fun colors for the City Crafter Pineapple Challenge. I also needed one more Thank You Card for my trip to Junkie Fest 2018 in Minneapolis next week (watch my Instagram for some play-by-play photos), so the sentiment was perfect.
I used the layout from Retro Rubber Stamps since this stamp set dates back to at least September 2016. Instead of a scallop punch for the border, I incorporated the overlapping circle design from the cake in the inspiration photo.
I'm pretty sure I will be making an inspired Mermaid card before the challenge ends ... those colors are just too pretty to resist.
