Let's Hang Out!

Let's Hang Out! - Hi everyone! Today the challenge at Craft Your Days Away is summertime and our sponsor is the wonderful Simon Say Stamp. They have lots of rubber stamps to include The Greeting Farm and Magnolia. The carry a wide range of crafting products that will delight crafters of all levels and skills.

My DP is Heidi Swapp. It is double sided, so 2 of the patterns were from the same sheet of paper. The DP with the purple and orange is Miss Elizabeth.

I used teardrops that are Recollections and made the rosettes quilling a spiril. They were then coated with Matte Accents. They are a little milky as I photographed them before they had completly dried. My tiny pearls were made using my Viva Deco Pearl pen.

My image is The Greeting Farms mermaid. This is one of the first stamps that I bought when I first started working with Copic's. I was on vacation with my son, his wife and my male grandchildren. Everyone wanted to color this mermaid, even though I had also bought a stamp of a boy on a skateboard. I used glue from The Rubber Cafe on her, then used a lot of fine glitter to make her fins and shells sparkle. I also added some Viva Decor pearls in her hair.
Summertime is a fun challenge to do, so I hope you will join in the fun with us at Craft Your Days Away.
