I was REALLY Inspired with this Sketch and how there were so MANY Possibilities with it!! I stared by Inking my Background to create a FUN Sun Set/Sun Rise Scene!! I decided to use Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks for the Ocean and then I Splattered it with some Water for alittle Interest!! I used Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks for the Sky!! I used Mustard Seed Distress Ink for the Stitched Heart "Sun" Die Cut and then I Sprayed it with Water after I Inked it up because I decided I wanted it to have a more Soft Water Colored look!! I Stamped and Embossed the Mermaid Image and then I colored her in using a Mixture of Distress Inks and Copic Markers!! I LOVE how well they work together on an Image!! I Covered her Tail with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and then Coated it with some WoW Clear Detail Embossing Powder!! I LOVE the way it Looks once it is Heated!! I added the Banner Die Cut to be like a Rock/Island that the Mermaid was Resting on while watching the Sun Set/Sun Rise with her BELOVE Sea Horse!! I added a Few Star Fish that I Stamped, Embossed and Colored using Antique Linen Distress Ink and then covered with some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker!! A few Crystal Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and my Card was done!! I LOVE the way it turned out and I CAN'T WAIT to see what you create for this Challenge!!

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
