Shaker Mermaid

Hello Friends,

It's time for another challenge over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  It's everyone's favorite, Anything Goes!  Whoo Hoo.  We have a special Sponsor this week - A Random Fan, so I wanted to use a stamp that Laura carries in her store.  I also got super excited when I saw Kimberly Crawford's Fishbowl Shaker Card.   The minute I saw it, I knew I wanted to add a Mermaid to the mix.  So I had to make my own.




Now I could have added more to the outside, but I didn't want to take away from the over all design.  it seemed busy enough as it was and it is a shaker card, so the last thing I wanted was anything to come flying off the card, lol.  

I started off with X-Press it Copic Paper and stamped the Monet Mermaid in Memento Black Ink, Then I stamped her again onto some scratch paper, fussy cut her out and covered her up with that scratch paper cut out.  Then I stamped the Mermaid castle and again, restamped on scratch paper and fussy cut that out and covered up the castle.  Then I airbrushed the blue and the sand.  Uncovered them and colored them up with my Copic Markers.  I followed Kimberly's fishbowl tutorial and used some cute polka dot paper and viola, a peek-a-boo shaker card.  So fun!  

Take a look at the New Items in the store!  So much fun and there are so many things in the store that can be potential Shaker cards!!! lol.
