Double Challenge Friday

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 137

Happy Friday! I was so happy to be able to ink up this gorgeous stamp from the Magnolia Summer kit! I decided to use her for this week’s Friday Sketchers Challenge. This week we are being hosted by the very sweet and  very talented Carole! Her sketch was perfect to use with Mermaid Tilda!

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 137I decided to go with a gorgeous pink color for this little mermaid and pulled out this gorgeous Magnolia paper as inspiration. I masked Tilda and then added the seaweed and bubbles stamp. After that, I airbrushed the scene and added stickles to the bubbles and went over Tilda’s hair and tail with copic atyou spica pens. You can see the sparkle in this picture:

and here is a picture of the tag that pulls out. The sentiment is by Verve Stamps! They have such great fonts and sayings. I just love them!

My next card is for the Wags ‘n Whiskers Challenge where we were given the theme of: “Triple Play”! We need to use 3 of something. I decided to use three ribbons! My image is one of the Emma Metcalf ones and I am so happy with these! They are just so sweet and perfect for CAS cards. Coloring them in is  so much fun!

After I cut my image out with my nestabilities, I left it in the die. Then I lightly sponged around the edges. Once you take the die off, you have this lovely crisp white edge! I love this look. I paper pierced along the edges of my DP but it is a little hard to see in my photo.
