Sunset Mermaid Card #6

Good  Morning and Happy Saturday! Welcome to Day #6 of Mermaid Week!

Today’s card was inspired by another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (Lisa LoPresti Curcio). She did a Beautiful Card using the New stamp set “Fabulous Flamino” from Stampin’ Up! When I saw her card it was just breath taking.  Don’t have that set “YET” so of course what came to mind???

Yes my current obsession “Magical Mermaid”!   So here is what I created!  I did get a little heavy handed with the Tango Tangerine BUT it was to late! I will be doing this one again!

I ended up LOVING the final results though!  There is something about it that just draws me in!

Here is a close up! Makes me want to go to the beach and watch the sunset!  Here are the materials I used.

Magical Mermaid meets High Tide

Happy Wednesday ALL! Ok so this is day 3 of Mermaid week!  I have LOTS to share and more ideas with this stamp set!  Remember all the Mermaids I stamped? Well I’ve got to do something with them right?

BUT was super excited with this card that I created last night and it kept me up late that’s for sure!

It was in my head and so here it is….”Magical Mermaid” meets “High Tide”.  I’m super rusty on my “Sponging” skills but have been practicing. Which you’ll see on the card I did before this one. (Yes another Mermaid Card) LOL!   I’m loving this!  Click photo to see bigger image.

Hope you like it….stay tuned for more inspiration.  I can’t seem to stop. As always thanks for stopping by and….
