I made these mermaid cards for two sisters who are so fun I knew they would love them!!! They are the same stamps and layouts, I only changed the color scheme and tail embellishments. The mermaid is stamped from a FREE set thanks to the Journey Bloom Benefits program. Every $50 you spend you can choose one of the Bloom Benefits; this stamp is called Mermaid Wishes. The Under the Sea bundle compliments it perfectly - it's like they were made to go together! I stamped the images in Black Licorice and heat set them so they wouldn't run while I colored using the Fusion Blender, Blending Brush and Reinkers. The colors are: Bubble Gum, Watermelon Fusion, Sweet Berry, Banana Cream (this makes a great flesh color), Grape Fusion, Citrus Cooler, Limeade Splash, Lemon Grass, Pineapple Smoothie, Cool Pool, Pool Play, Blue Lagoon, Oatmeal Cookie and Hazelnut Blend. Card Stock I used was Whip Cream, Citrus Cooler, Sweet Berry, Pineapple Smoothie, Blue Lagoon and Pool Play embossed with the Yummy Dots embossing folder to give the feel of underwater bubbles. I added Journey Glaze to their eyes and also her tail with Journey Blue Skies Sequins (blue) and Journey Sparkle Dust (pink) layered over. Finally, I popped all the pieces up for dimension using Journey Foam Squares.

I have been stamping for 14 years and am thrilled to be one of the first Fun Stampers Journey Coaches in Ohio. It was my honor to serve on the 2016-2017 Leadership Team for Fun Stamper's Journey.
