The Little Mermaid

Hello friends, I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday, whether it be just beginning or coming to and end - like  mine.  Daylight Savings starts here in the early hours of the morning - my DH always puts our clocks forward after dinner - firstly to make sure they are done and secondly so we don't end up staying up too late so we lose an hours sleep.

I am sharing a whimsical card with you today and have finally gotten on the Mermaid 'band wagon' wink:wink.  I have used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die D-Lites Build-a-Mermaid Etched Dies  - they are so cute and make it so easy to create may different looks with your mermaid.

I have also used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Rise 'n Shine Etched Dies My Little Red Wagon by Debi Adams for the clouds and layers of blue and white card stock to create the waves - so very simple but also effective .

The Mermaids face has been coloured using Chameleon Pens I have to admit I am a little 'taken' with the - Tiny Sentiments Stamp from the Happy Grams #3 by Tammy Tutterow and have stamped it using  Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the heart using a red glitter pen.

Kindy Glitz/Liquid glitter has been added to the mermaids tail and the waves to add a little shimmer.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner. has been used on this card.
