So, yesterday I really did ask Google, "what do you call a group of mermaid's" when I was attempting to title today's post. Fun fact, a group of jellyfish is called a "smack" and a group of squid is called a "squad." But, it turns out, there is no collective noun for a group of mermaids. According to The Fish Vet, if mermaids were fish, a group of them would be called a school. If they were classified as humans, they’d be called a tribe.
And, if they’re sea mammals, similar to dolphins, a group of them are called pods. So, whatever they are called, enjoy today's rainbow of mermaid tails!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangles, I cut the first layer from Basic black cardstock. I cut a 5" x 3 3/4" sheet of white cardstock and stamped "Hello Beautiful" in Memento Tuxedo Black ink directly in the center before adhering this piece to the card base. On small scraps of Melon Mambo, Mango Medley, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Tempting Turqouise (retired) and Gorgeous Grape cardstock, I stamped the mermaid tail in Versamark ink and heat embossed each in white embossing powder. I die cut each tail individually and adhered them to the card in a rainbow pattern using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I put a coat of Clear Wink of Stella over each mermaid tail for added sparkle.
Below is the Be A Mermaid stamp set and die from Taylored Expressions that I used to create this card:
