One of a Kind Mermaid — FMS333

It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our incredibly talented friend from down under, Narelle Farrugia, is our hostess.  Take a look at this fun sketch:

In my quest to use retiring stamp sets before they officially retire, I pulled my Magical Day stamp set off the shelf.  I love the sweet little mermaid in this set, and can’t help but think of Ariel from the Little Mermaid.  Boy, I saw that one many times when my girls were little.

I started this one by coloring a little bit of embossing paste with a drop of Pool Party ink on my silicone mat and then spreading it over a Pattern Party Decorative Mask.  I used a little bit of leftover ribbon from Sale-a-Bration to add a bit of color.

For the focal circle, I stamped the the mermaid and sea horse and colored them with Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Write markers, and then die-cut them with the coordinating framelits.  The other circle was cut from a piece from the Myths & Magic dsp.

This is such a fun suite, and it will only be available for a short time so get it now if you want it.

When I was deciding on which stamp set to use this week, I remembered The Paper Players current challenge, and thought this would work with their theme as well as our sketch.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We love to see how you interpret the sketch and visit your blog.  Meanwhile, be sure to go by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a great card Amy! I love all the little details, especially the textured background and that sweet seahorse, also the pop of colour added by the coral ribbon. A great way to combine both challenges. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!

  2. Amy this is adorable! Your little mermaid is so sweet, and I love her tiny “pet” seahorse. Such a fun little scene. Thanks so much for playing along with my challenge this week at The Paper Players!
