Under the Sea

Had a fun day yesterday at Scrapfest in Kitchener.  Drove up with Lindabella, and once there met up with Paulabella and her BFF Mary, Cathabella and her Mom, Robinbella, Ebrubella, Helen and of course bella herself - Emily.  Emily and Isabelle were doing make n' takes on canvas.  Well you know who had to do one, no not me but Lindabella.  Here is a picture I took of her in action.  I tell you the finished masterpiece was Bellariffic Gorgeous!  I'm sure she will post her masterpiece on her blog.

Now, as far as my card goes for today, I'm using a new image I picked up from Stamping Bella at Scrapfest. I just couldn't resist these adorable memaids.
There are 3 to a set and it's called " 3 baby mermaids under the sea".

I stamped the mermaid on bella's bestest paper and colour her up with my prisma color pencils and blended with gamsol. Cut her out using my oval nestie and then sponged some sea breeze versamagic ink around her while the die was in place.
Layered her onto a piece of cherry red c/s cut out the with mega scallop oval.
The DP I used just fit so perfecting with these mermaid images.  Paper is from Cosmo Cricket called Salt Air.

Finished up with some stitching, a pearl,  and lots of glitter on her mermaid fins. Made a rosette out of yellow felt and punched a couple of leaves using MS punch. The real reason for the flower is because I had another idea of what to put there, I had punched a hole to put a brad and ribbon, but after I did that, didn't like the look so I had to cover up the hole!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  It is beautiful  here in Chatham, sunny, breezy and 77.  Can't get any better than that!

crap! clearly the 75 dollars i spent on that French serum that is supposed to tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles is NOT doing it's job! Or else it is, and I shudder to think what I would look like if I didn't slather it all over my face! hopefully everyone will just skip past that and go look at your cutie card.

He he - look at Lindabella concentrating on her project. It turned out gorgeous as we know! Had so much fun catching up with you - and so jealous you have this mermaid colored up already. Love the sea colors - the paper is perfect for this image
