Under the Sea at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hi friends! This week's challenge over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog is "Under the Sea", which of course is just perfect for the brand new "Sea Jewels Set" released yesterday! Our hostess this week is the lovely Jenny Peterson.

The Sea Jewels Set features three mermaids designed by Annie Rodrigues and seven coordinating sentiments. I inked up one of the mermaids and paired her up with some MME papers. The layer behind her was cut and matted with Spellbinders Labels 8. The decorative edges were made with one of the Classic Corners Dies by SCACD. The flourish was cut with an MFT die. The sentiment is part of the Mermaid Sentiment Set. This is an older set, but it goes perfectly with the Sea Jewels Set. To finish it off I added some machine stitching and scatterings of pearls created with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White.

The mermaid was stamped on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers.The shells and stars were jazzed up with some Smooch Illuminate. Her tail was first coated with Smooch Illuminate followed by a very thin coat of Stardust Stickles.
