Who's That Mermaid VIP Hop

Isn't this just the perfect image for the first day of summer?  Who's That Mermaid is July's Who's That Girl set and is available 3 weeks early as part of the VIP kit.  This is a limited availability product - when they're gone, they're gone and the set and new die-namic die won't be available for purchase again until July 5th.  If you're just stumbling upon this post, you'll want to head back to the beginning of the hop over at Kim's blog so that you don't miss any of the amazing projects!

I stamped my mermaid out on X-Press It blending cardstock and paired her with some Basic Grey Out of Print papers.  I pieced the whole image - there's lots of layers going on there.  Luckily I found some sand paper in my stash and it worked perfectly.  I also used some Fossil (currently being re-stocked) and Black Licorice cardstocks along with some Blue Skies felt.  I cut the felt with the Catch a Wave die and used the flag die from the First Place Award Ribbon die (told you I was addicted!).  The sentiment I used comes from the free Mermaid Sentiment mini set that is only available with the VIP kit - it will never be available again, it's exclusive.  


It's hard to see in this picture, but I stamped some bubbles (one of the accessory stamps) in a light blue ink and then went over them with a Sakura Clear Glaze pen.  I also went over her bodice and tip of her tail with the glaze pen.  I coated the spots on her tail with a clear Spica pen as well.


I finished the inside off with some more of the accessory stamps, a sentiment from the set as well as a Happy Birthday sentiment from the More Essential Sentiments set (currently being re-stocked).







That's all I've got for you.  Don't forget to run over and nab your own VIP kit.  And the new à la modes are now available as well.  You can find them all right HERE.

Now you're on your way to visit my sweet friend Sherrie.  Thanks for stopping by.
