Have a magical day...

Hello friends!

It's my day to post over at the Greeting Farm blog and even though we just wrapped up the July release, I had one more idea featuring some of the new stamps that I simply had to get it out of my head and turn it into a card. By now some of you may have noticed how much I enjoy mixing new and old stamp sets, so how could I not pair up one of the new Mermaid Kisses cuties with one of her magical fairy cousins from the Fairy Happy set? Talk about a match made in Fantasy Land, LOL! To create this happy little meeting I inked up the mermaid but then wiped the ink away from the underside of her tail before stamping. This allowed me to color the water up around her, giving her the appearance of floating in the shallows. Then I stamped the fairy flying above and added the twirly 'steam' stamp from the Mini Remix Brewtiful set behind her to allude to the fairy's crazy flight path. The rest of the scene was colored in using my Copic markers and I added some glittery Stickles at the end to make it look like the fairy is sprinkling pixie dust all over her wet friend. :)  

Alrighty then, I hope your day is a crafty one!
