Enchanted Mermaid

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! :) Phew, I cannot believe I've been away from my blog all week. With all the days we missed at work due to the massive snow storm, I had so much to catch up on this week. When I come home in the evenings, hubby and I have been glued to the TV watching the Olympics so I haven't been in my craft room much. I decided last night that I would record the Olympics so I could create a card :)




As I've mentioned numerous times, I am in LOVE with Sweet Pea Stamps. My card today features Poppy Love from ching chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection. I inked the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped it onto PTI cardstock. I colored the image with copics and then sponged around the image with Rose Red Memento ink. I next created my card base with SU cardstock (Rose Red and Mellow Moss). The design paper is from K & Co. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the top piece of design paper. This is my favorite border punch, I can't remember what its official name is, but I love it :) Next, I tied my ribbon (from the Basic Basic collection at Michael's) with my wonderful Bow Easy. Finally, for a finishing touch, I added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also added some branches from my Martha Stewart branch punch to add a bit more texture to the flowers. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend. I'll see you back here tomorrow with another project.

Big Hugs, Christine
