The tide always turns...

Hi there!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means... time for my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. There are plenty of fabulous mermaid stamps to be found in the store making it hard to choose which one would be swimming on the scene today. I finally went with this gorgeous mer from Whimsy Stamps called Elania. Not only is she just the prettiest little mermaid but the rock, bubbles, coral and shell are all part of the image as well which makes for some pretty easy scene building. All I had to add was the sea bed, water and kelp and the card was practically done. Stamping the school of fish into the water behind Elania really brought the whole card to life. The sentiment comes from the Sugar Pea Designs Seaside Wishes set, which I got in preparation for my month of mermaids because not only did I love the sayings but the font is really lovely too. Alrighty then, I'm also throwing this in as my second entry into this month's "anything goes" Whimsy challenge.  :)

There is soooo much to love about her. The tail colors... from Y11 to BV29... inspiration, my friend. Love the contrast! Her hair, eyes, the background... your mermaids this year are gorgeous!
