For a friend #2

Here is the 2nd card I sent my friend in the mail!!!

The stamps I used today are from Sweet November, aren't they adorable!!!  I masked these lovely's together and choose not to use the little pals they came with ( just wiped the ink off before I stamped) I kept this one pretty simple since my Image ended up pretty big :)

Added diamond glaze to the middle mermaid's fin for some shine

a few sea shells for decoration

This is one the "pals" that is supposed to be next to the mermaid, sentiment and bubbles is from Kraftin Kimmie

For a Friend

Hello my crafty gals! I have scheduled this post to give these cards a couple of day to get to my card pal :) 

For this card I wanted to try a technique I have seen a few times which is adding paint to the edges of everything to give it more of a grunge look. I think I like it! what do you think?

For my Image I used Cinders from Krista Smith. I stamped her with grey Stazon ink and colored her with TH distress inks. 

Had to add sparkle with my Spica pen! :)

Sentiment is from an old company that is no longer opened: Elzybells

Thank you for stopping by!!!

Kimmie Challenge 138

Good evening everyone! I hope every had a great weekend! The new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie this week is stitching... EEkkkk! beware of the fact that #1 I don't have a sewing machine and #2 I am the least talented button sewer on-er EVER!!! hahahaha anyhoo I tried! I punched little holes in my paper with the needle first, then hand stitched the border of my die cut..
For the life of me couldn't decide how to embellish this card, so simple it stayed..

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!

Mermaid Kimmie

Hello wonderful ladies! I'm back to show you another Kraftin Kimmie card!
Today I used Arianna, isn't she adorable! she just loves playing with her sea horse friends! This stamp comes with the mermaid and sea horses as one stamp then 2 little extra stamps, a coral and a group of bubbles. I knew I wanted to add dimension, so after I stamped my mermaid, I masked her with some mask it paper then I added the coral to make it look like she was in front it! then a couple groups of bubbles and voila! LOVE mask it paper!

I colored her with my Copics and added Diamond glaze to the bubbles and silver/ gold Spica to her earring and sea horse.. here's a couple close-ups..

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Mom says I have to!

Every time I see this cutie it reminds me of a girl who is Tomboy and her mom made her put on a dress ( for one occasion or another ) haha I can't tell you how many little cousins I have that hate dresses! haha anyhoo, I kept this card super simple just adding a little Rafia ribbon to the bottom and 3D-ing the little frog in the circle.
