Magical Mermaid Birthday Party

Hi Peaches! What an eventful weekend!!! My little girl just turned 6 years old and she's absolutely crazy for mermaids. So guess what kind of party we planned-a mermaid pool party of course!! I made everything for her party from beautiful tranquil jellyfish lanterns to starfish magic wands. There were seashells and sand, coral and cake! We even had Ariel, the little mermaid, herself show up as a surprise for her. Ariel sang, painted the girls' nails and told them stories poolside. It was an unforgettable day, filled with magical memories for all. I've included pictures below of the spectacular event. For now, I wanted to share the birthday card I made for my little girl.

This card was inspired by another mermaid card I made a few posts back. I changed up a few things, mainly the colors. The theme colors of the party were aqua, light blue, and purple, so of course my mind goes to Stampin' Up! colors, lol. The obvious choices were Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, and Perfect Plum. The great thing about these colors when used to watercolor is that they blend beautifully and create much softer colors than when stamped directly on paper.

I took my watercolor paper and created a soft ombré watercolor wash, starting with Perfect Plum, then Tempting Turquoise, and lastly Bermuda Bay. I used the same colors on my mermaid's tail as well as on my greenery which I die cut using the Beautiful Bouquet dies. For the finishing touch, I added some  iridescent sequins and copper trim. I just love these colors together and since the card was created first, I was able to use it as inspiration for my daughter's party. I just love when it all works out like that! Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see all of you next post!
