Splish Splash Birthday



I'm going for 4 with this card. I've had this cute mermaid for a couple of years, she's from http://eurekastamps.com , she's one of the first unmounted stamps I bought. At first I put Alene's Tack-It Over & Over on the backs of my unmounteds, that was a little time consuming and I'm more of an instant girl, I discovered I could put repositionable glue dots on the back and it works just fine with my acrylic blocks. A little explanation--there are some little flowers, a heart, she's for my youngest granddaughters bd, I hope fishy mermaids qualify as animals, and the pearls are pink. I think that covers 4.

4 Challenges:

Supplies: Card Blank White 5" X 7" Value Pack-Hobby Lobby, brown and white card stock-my paper stash, green vellum-Hot Off The Press Paper Pizazz Pastel Vellum, Die Cuts with a View-Pastel Prints mat stack, Xyron 500 sticker machine, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink: Jet Black, Sepia, LuminArte Twinkling H2O's-chiffon pink, natural linen, persimmon, sky blue, blue grass, Stamps: Lg. mermaid-Eureka Stamps, Stamp Tapestry-heart peg, My Sentiments Exactly-Y526 Multi Retro, metallic cord-Michael's, rub-ons-Bazzill White/Gold Leaf, crystal stickers-pearls, Fiskars Cloud 9 Design-rain drops, Sharpie permanent marker-pink to color pearls, CTMH markers-black, chocolate, pop dots.
