Mermaid wishes

I have been playing with some new products this weekend and paired them with some old ones.

The sweet mermaid stamp is part of a large set by Sheena Douglas (Sea View Collection) that came with the Creative Stamping magazine that I ordered from the UK last month. I inked her up in Mememto Rich Cocoa and coloured her using my new Prismacolors. I die cut the edges using an old (but never before used) Memory Box border die (Bitty Scallop), stamped the sentiment in Black archival and matted my panel with a panel of (old) precut Core'dinations cardstock before mounting everything to my white card base. Since a mermaid needs some sparkle, I went over the scales with a Spectrum Noir glitter brush (really sparkly IRL) and added a few PPP sequins.

I'm linking up at:

  6. Wat een verrassende kaart! Ben er helemaal weg van. Je wordt gewoon helemaal in de kaart getrokken. En dan dat prachtige rode haar en de groenige tinten. En die speelse randen. Daar ben ik ook gewoon verliefd op. Hoeveel plezier kun je hebben van simpel:kleurpotloden. Echt een Toppertje lieve zus. Ineke☀️
