Mermaid For You Flip Flop

As soon as I saw this design by Marine I wanted to make it. It was definitely a long process making all those different ink blended parts and coloring all the images but it was worth it! I made two identical cards at the same time, which I often do when I have a really involved card like this. It helps make it “worth” all the effort (not that it wouldn’t be for one, but it is a lot of steps, so it feels good to get 2 cards out of it) and it’s also a faster way to get 2 cards made. I usually do that when I especially like a card design so that I can look at it a little longer before both get sent out!
