Today, I am sharing a mermaid card. It seems that everywhere you look these day you can find a mermaid. I thought they where hard to find - you needed to be at sea for many days. lol
So, here is a little about my mermaid. I used a Recollections stamp by Michaels. I colored her with Copic Markers, I then added highlights with a white Gelly Roll pen. Then I added some twinkle with a Zig Wink of Stella pen in Clear Glitter. For the background I use Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads and the stencil that cam with the stamp set.
I then stamped the fish, star fish, sand dollars, coral and seashell with various distress inks and Stampin' Up ink. I use Stampin' Up Dapper Denim ink for the sentiment and tiny bubbles.
Finished it off with some Zig Wink of Stella and tiny star sequins.
Thanks for stopping by. If you create a mermaid project of your won leave me a link I would love to see it.

Another layout for Cookin' Up Creations Birthday Bash. Challenge # 1 -- Use a list in your project. You should stop and join in all the fun. Lots of challenges and prizes.
Ok, so this layout need it's own video soundtrack to go with it. Here is the back story with it. My son Liam loves the Beastie Boys' song Sabotage. He loves the video even more - not sure if it's the cars, moustaches, sunglasses or the 70's vibe of it all. So, one night I hear him singing along to the song. I come into the dining room to find him making a video to this song. he stops it long enough to ask me to pretend to punch him for the drama part of his mini movie.
