"You want thing-a-ma-bobs..."

"I've got plenty!"

CIC 67

This week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge featured mermaids. Since I don't have a mermaid stamp, I used a digital stamp from Pollycraft. A freebie digital stamp which made it all the more sweeter. The Sweetest Thing was the sketch inspiration.

Mermaids, since watching a certain Disney movie several years ago, will always have red hair to me. Well, I guess there's that Tom Hanks/Daryl Hannah movie too...she was a blonde mermaid...I don't know. Madison is not a "mermaidy" name to me.

Okay, back to the card. I had left this card sitting on the desk for a while unfinished since my craft room was so hot. I finally had a chance to finish it while Baby Z took a nap. I took the Vintage Wall  embossing folder out of the packaging, broke open the marina mist & cajun craze cardstock. Frankly, I'm not loving the cajun craze. I don't know if it's trying to recreate spicy and hot. I'm not feeling the orange/red/puke feeling it conveys. Ms. Mermaid was coloured using a combination of Copics and SU markers, cut out and placed just so on the top note die cut.

Who would I give this card to? A mermaid lover like one of my nieces.

Thanks for stopping by today!
