Hello Summer!


I decided to color a mermaid.  So, I chose Catalina by Joanna Schempp for Sweet Pea Stamps.  Isn't she just beautiful?  After coloring, I decided to go ahead and make a card.  So here it is.  I also used a sentiment from Digital Delights.  This sentiment is from the Heatwave Sentiment Set.

I used SU Pool Party as my cardstock and the ribbon is also from SU in the Pool Party color.  My DP is from Creative Imaginations Beach Cottage 6x6 pad.  I love how the paper had a starfish in the bottom corner.  Just perfect for the mermaid theme.

I used SB Square and Lacy Square die cuts.  My flower is MFT Die-namics Hibiscus die cut.  The flower is made with scraps.  The petals are SU Pool Party, flower center is SU Daffodil Delight and leaves are SU Pistachio Pudding.

My Copic Sketch markers were BG000, E000, E00, E11, G00, G02, G14, R02, R24, YR12, YR14, YR15.
