a little mermaid...

Good morning everyone! 

Today I wanted to share a fun card using a couple of new crafting goodies and a cute mermaid from Bugaboo stamps!  
I made an underwater scene with my new 'Sea Animals' dies from Spellbinders and some Shimmery Goodness medium from The Crafter's Workshop. The background was created with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink, once dry I stenciled some sea like plants using a Simon Says Stamp flora stencil and Mustard Seed Distress Ink. Then I applied my Shimmery Goodness through the My Favorite Things Confetti stencil. I love this medium and it's so shimmery IRL... I can't wait to use it again! 

Well, that's all for now... thanks so much for stopping by!
Take care, Tammy

I’ve never thought of using anything but blue for an underwater scene, but you totally rocked it with yellow. Nice detailing and such a beautiful scene for the mermaid. So glad to see you entered this card over at Catch the Bug, good luck in the draw.

What an awesomely cute, smile-inducingly fun card. The googly eyes are a fabulous touch (and something I need to remember to utilize more often myself).
