A Little Mermaid

came to live at my house a few weeks ago. Sweet Kimmie from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps asked if I’d like to play with some of her new releases (SIX stunning Mermaid images, SIX matching accessory stamps (plus a few bonuses) and a coordinating Mermaid Sentiment set with over 20 perfect phrases!!  This kit is only available as a set and only at the Krafin’ Kimmie Shop for a limited time!) and I jumped at the chance. And then to get these darling images in the mailbox? My daughter and I *both* squealed and have had a ton of fun coloring and glittering images.  This lovely mermaid is Cordelia, and she’s just sassy as can be and available here today.

I stamped her then colored with a bunch of Copics, trimmed carefully, then added glitter. She was partially adhered to the circle and since she was only partially adhered, I could curl her tail fin up a little and add some foam boosters for more dimension.  That was the trickiest part of the card – the rest is pretty easy!

If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog!  As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!!  And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie store, because ALL the new images are NOW available!  OH and did we mention?  Each and every order placed this week, will receive a little goodie bag of random bonus accessory stamps in your package! How about that???

Hop on to the Donna’s blog for some more inspiration. . .
