Mermaid Friends!

It's the month of May (it may snow, it may rain, it may be sunny)
and it's a great time to celebrate with Mermaids
(since it's also Mer-May in lots of crafting circles).

I saw the gorgeous color inspiration from 
 and decided that I needed to play along this week.

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps also has a challenge theme
(one of 3 to choose from) that inspired me.  
I used the "Use Bright Colors" theme from that challenge.

Here's my card for these challenges

Although it's difficult to see, I added a spritz
(or 10) of soft, shimmery glitter over the top of the
stenciled panel to make it feel more "magical".

The stamp set, Mermaid Friends, and the 
gorgeous Mermaid Scales stencil as well as the
ink I used (Tranquil Teal) are all from 
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
I colored the beautiful mermaid and her sweet friend
with copic markers (BG45, BG53, YR09, YR07, YR04,
V12, V15, V17 and BG 70, BG72).
For a final touch of sparkle, I added some 
gems from Pink Fresh Studios. 

Hope you liked my card! Thanks for stopping by!

You are One in a Melon!

 Hello! Hello! I'm glad that you've stopped by my blog 

to visit and see my newest creation.
Today I am sharing a card I made with one of the 
amazing April/May release stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

My card features the super cute Fruity Fun stamp set.  
Watermelon is one of my favorite things about summer 
- especially on a hot day! 
And how fun is it that I found the exact perfect
papers to use too?! 

Isn’t this Fun?! I colored the watermelon pieces with 
copic markers (RV14 and RV13 for the flesh or "tasty part" 
and G09, G05, G03 and G000 for the rind and inner part).  
I also used a black gel pen on the seeds to give them a little extra pizzaz. 

I just wanna take a big bite and celebrate summer!  

I'm sharing this card in the following challenges:
(I chose the theme of Bright Colors)
If you are interested in how I made this card, you can catch my 
Colour-a-long in the Krafty Friends Facebook group (look in the Media
and Videos section).
Thanks for stopping by today!
