I have a dear friend who wanted a mermaid card for her daughter - her daughter just loves mermaids AND she loves pink, purple and blue. How did I do using those colors? LOL What a great and fun image to color. The mermaid is a digital stamp from Michelle Perkett (she has some super images, be sure to check them out in her Etsy store); isn't she adorable? I printed her MULTIPLE times so I could do lots of layering and coloring, look at that amazing dimension!
I used Taylor's sketch #109; what a fun, fun sketch; can't wait to use it again. I, once again, didn't want to be left behind in the newest trends (I am so not a trendy chick truly); but alas, I used some cardboard as the sand; I edged it with Scattered Straw Distress Ink & SU! Close to Cocoa; I also sponged with Scattered Straw just above where the sand would be when adhered to the white card stock.
The birthday girl is such a girly girl, so I made sure to include lots of sparkly bubbles on the mermaid, sparkly Encore purple ink, purple gems and the envelope has an extra sparkly butterfly & birthday sentiment. I hope she loves it!
And I hope YOU had a great weekend. We have another busy week lined up, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks for stopping by; I really do appreciate your visit! Hugs, ~M.
Fun Fact - Cleopatra married two of her brothers. (really? that's just WRONG!!!)
