Lawnscaping Challenge - Distress Maniacs!

Hey everyone!  Hope you are getting ready to start your weekend!   This weeks Lawnscaping Challenge is Distress Maniacs.  So,  I used Distress ink on my card below for the background.    The images are form the ultra cute Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You stamp set.    

I white heat embossed with a My Favorite Things Background stamp called Winter Waves.   Then I used several Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch.    Be sure to use a paper towel to wipe off the ink from the white embossing on the card.   I cut the panel with a Blueprints number 2 frame.   The mermaid and merman were stamped on Neenah Solar White and colored in with Copic Markers.   The sentiment was stamped on another Blueprint 13 label.    I stamped the small three hearts in Apple Mama Elephant Pigment ink and coated with clear Pico Embellisher.  The main panel was frames with the My Favorite Things Stitched Circle Scalloped Frame using Smooth White card Stock. 

I am linking this card to the Lawnscaping Challenge below. 

A Sakura White Gel pen was used to add detail to the images along with the dots added by the Copic Markers.
