I finally got round to make a mermaid card with the Simon says Stamp September Card kit unfortunately its now sold out but you can buy Beautiful Mermaid stamp set separately and you can now buy the dies.
I noticed that I had coloured my mermaid more in the way of turquoise and the Oxide Stormy Sky wouldn't quite work with my colours so I opted on making a background with the Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China. I particularly like white showing in my backgrounds and usually it's the last few swipes of the smooching technique I love best.
I had more or less used the Splitcoast Stampers Card sketch challenge SC713 but I added a bit of a fancy border using Simon says Stamp Scallop Stitches. I cut tiny strip of glitter card to give it a bit more an interest.
All the fishes, seahorse and seaweed are all stamps with the mermaid stamp set including the birthstone sentiment but the Happy Birthday is from Simon says Stamp Messages for Everybody. Fitted perfectly in the one of the Simon says Stamp Stitched Banners.
It's a card making day in my craft room although my crochet is calling to me my Persian Tiles are now done and I'm joining them together which is a bit like placing a jigsaw together, already I've had to unpick it couple of times.
