Thanks so much for popping in today; the new Ladybug Crafts Ink Design Team is having a BLAST. Talk about an incredibly talented group of girls, beyond that? They are hysterical to work with - they give me several good chuckles every single day! (Don't forget, you can click on any of the images to see it up close & personal - LOL)!
Today we're all posting creations made with Mermaid Nikki. I love Nikki & friends! Kerry (Queen Ladybug) has some AMAZING stamps. Don't miss a single creation along this journey, because there are three prizes to be won and L-O-T-S of fun along the way!
Here's what you need to do to win some fabby prizes:
1. The blog banner - do you already have it? If not, hurry, grab it & post it on your blog before Queen Ladybug peeks into your blog. If you need it - I've added it right here for you!
2. Visit each design team members blog and leave a comment along the way (we all love love!!). And keep your eyes peeled for a hidden ladybug on one of the Lovely Ladybug's blogs (design team member); it will be very apparent - you'll see why you need this information in just a moment!
3. After visiting each Ladybug and leaving a comment, then hop back over to Queen Ladybug's blog (http://ladybugcraftsink.blogspot.com/) and leave her a comment too!
4. Remember the Lovely Ladybug (design team member) that had the hidden "ladybug"? (BTW, the ladybug is visible in the picture right alongside the Design Team members card - it's not hard to spot). When you see it, e-mail Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org letting her know where you found the ladybug! (yep, another chance to win)
WOW - look at all the ways you can win! Hopefully you've stumbled upon me from the beautiful Mary J Designs blog; if not, be sure to start at the beginning (HERE). As you can tell, I used some calming colors reminding me of water, mermaids and such. Miss Nikki is sporting a mermaid's fin like none other! The fin was created with a wax resist resist technique (nope, I didn't make it; it was a gift from a beautiful friend of mine), but I think it's stunning for this card! You can see I also added a small strip of it to the bottom of the card as well as the inside of the card.
I used lots and lots and lots of dimensionals - talk about 3D volume - kinda like my '80's hairstyle.
Nikki was colored with Copics; you can't tell from the pictures but her two little fish are sparkly as is Nikki's hair. I also added Crystal Effects to her bubbles - so cool IRL.
We're glad you stopped by; hope you enjoy the blog hop. Your next stop is the Lovely Ladybug - Pinky.
Have a GREAT day and thanks for celebrating with us! Hugs, ~M.
