Let's shellabrate...

Hello crafty friends!

I'm back with another card for the 7 Kids Customers Create Facebook page. If you are a regular follower of this ol' crafty blog than you may know that the last couple years I have dedicated the month of June to making mermaid cards. Well since this year I have design team commitments that aren't necessarily mermaid themed I have decided to start early and celebrate mermaids for the next two months. That way I will still have just as many under the sea themed cards, they will just be a bit spaced out. So I am kicking off Mer-May with this lovely mer from Honey Bee Stamps called Ocean Bliss. She is so regal looking, perched on that rock with her long hair flowing down in waves all around her. Because there are so many lines in the original image and I wanted to give her blonde hair, I inked Ocean Bliss up in Desert Sand and did the whole scene using the no-line coloring technique. I imagined her resting at the end of a stone jetty so I colored in some extra rocks before adding in the water and sky. The sentiment and message in a bottle come from another Honey Bee set called Mermaid Song and I really like how they tie the whole card together.   

Alrighty, you've still got a week to enter a project into the "glitter/shimmer" challenge and as always there is a $20 gift certificate to the 7 Kids store up for grabs. So get crafty and join the fun!
