Some Odd Girl May Sketch Challenge

Wow I didn't think I would make this in time. But as soon as those new stamps came in I just COULDN'T RESIST! I am thinking this Mermaid set is my favorite stamp set of all time.

So for this one I used some scrap papers (I have been on a scrap paper kick of late, using any small pieces I have on hand that work together) of pink and blue-green that I had which ended up being the perfect size! I didn't even need to cut them just glued them to some white cardstock. I then punched two horizontal punches and threaded some ribbon through. I stamped the waves and cut out a circle for the life preserver. The colors I used for this card was Melon Mambo and Bermuda bay from Stampin Up. I used the Mambo to color the life preserver and her hair. Bermuda was the fin and the outline. I added some scales with the pen and some stickles to her hair and fin and starfish top (colored in generic orange with orange stickles). I loved making this card and I am so excited to use this stamp some more!!! :) Some other finishing touches and voila! Enjoy!
