Maggie's Mermaid Card

I've been having LOTS of fun with the All in the Family set lately!! It's quite the fav choice at the moment and I'm loving the ideas that I keep coming up with!!
The latest being this great Stair Step Fold card which is from the amazing web site Splitcoast Stampers!! Click HERE to see the card in it's original form!! I demonstrated this great technique at my last stamp club and have been really enjoying having a difference!!
It was Maggie's birthday on the weekend and she LOVES mermaids so it seemed quite fitting to make her this card...
To make the Mermaids I just stamped the ladies dress with the head and arms then lined the bottom of her dress to dsp and drew a tail shape! Cut it out, stick it on and Presto!! You have a mermaid!! I used watercolour paper and where I added bikini tops I coloured them in first and then added the out line with my Basic black marker, this saved on it smudging when colouring after!! The waves and rocks are hand cut and the ribbon at the back is the LOVELY FREE RIBBON that you can get with a purchase of $100 or more at the moment! It comes with Certainly celery wide ribbon and is a must for ANY SPRING PROJECT!!! Contact me if you'd like to know more or place an order.
Great chatting to you, hope you're super duper!!
