Hi, There!  (Update for this card post - DT favorite with Crafting With Friends)

Received the Hero Arts' Month of May kit and have only just got around to making a few cards - not all put together yet but soon.  So you will be seeing lots of "under the sea" theme cards.   

Then I have some Penny Black stamps and can't wait to get into those for watercolor fun!!!  So here is my card without further a-do!!!  Thanks for visiting and till the next mermaid scene, sea you back here soon;) LOL  Hugs and blessing ~ CaroleAnn

Background was made with Distress Oxide inks and a stencil of waves that came with the kit. The mermaid, starfish, and clam were colored with Copic Markers and then they were die cut with the set that came with the kit.  

Die cut the reef on the side and dipped it into some Distress Oxide ink and the one tucked into the background scene.  Stamped the bubbles, seahorse, and the swimming sea turtle in the background along with some other fish - all from the kit.  Lots of glitter on the mermaid's flippers and the pearl in the clam.  Wink of Stella in her hair.
