If you've been following along, you should have arrived here after visiting with the lovely Jenny. If not, make sure to start the hop at the KKS Blog so you don't miss any blogs.

I am a HUGE fan of Annie's mermaids, so I've been very excited to colour up the images from this set. This lovely little mermaid is one of the three images you will receive in the Sea Jewels Set. I paired her up with some Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy papers. All paper edges were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. She was matted and framed with Spellbinders Circles and Lacey Circles. Those gorgeous corner embellishments were cut with a "Classic Corner Die" by SCACD. I added some machine stitching and a snippet of pretty crocheted trim that I scored on sale at my local fabric store. Oh, and the embossed white card base was a dollar store find...actually, they were a fantastic bargain as there were five cards with envelopes in the pack for $1. Gotta love a good bargain. ;)  (too bad I hadn't thought to photograph it against a darker background though as you can hardly see the white card base. tsk tsk)



She was stamped on Neenah in Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. I adore colouring mermaids. :)  After I was done colouring, I added some Smooch Illuminate for a bit of shimmer...although unfortunately, it's not really showing much "shimmer" in the photo.


Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20, RV95  Hair: E50, YR31, E31, E33, E37, E59  Shells: R81, R85, R89  Tail: BG01, BG05, BG07, BG09, BG10, YG00, YG11, C9

Sea Jewels is now available for purchase exclusively at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Online Store. I predict that this set is definitely going to be a hot seller! :)

It is now my pleasure to send you off to visit with the talented Miss Kraftin' Kimmie, and I know she has something gorgeous to share with you.

Happy hopping!

Blessings,

Melanie
