MFT May Hits & HIghlights--Magical May

There’s something magical about May. The transition from spring into summer
and the explosion of color. It seems like the perfect time to bring some magic
into our crafting as well.

This month, the Creative Team is challenged to feature magical creatures or
simply integrate the colors mystical creatures conjure in our imagination.

For my project, I pulled out Birdie Brown's mermaid and gave her "unicorn
colored" hair with Copic markers. I saw this look on Pinterest and thought
it would be fun to give my mermaid rainbow colored hair.

Balloon Strings was clear embossed horizontally on a white card base.
A wave pattern was stenciled on watercolor card stock using the Drifts and
Hills stencil and a circle was cut from it. The mermaid was adhered to the
piece and the sentiment was stamped over it.

I adhered all the pieces to the card and rounded off the right bottom corner.
Clear sequins finished off the card.

the rest of the Creative Team took on the Magical May Challenge!


  1. Absolutely Mer-Mazing!!! Donna, her rainbow hair is just the coolest!

  2. Super cute card, Donna! Beautiful coloring on the mermaid (especially her hair) and I love how you created water with your stencil...so clever!

  3. This card is magical, Donna! I just love the rainbow hair.

  4. Simply gorgeous and well thought-out card, Donna! The waves and mermaid's unicorn colored hair are so beautiful! The clear embossed balloon string background echoes the waves pattern and the color gradation of the waves matches the adorable mermaid's coloring. Hideko xx
