Sunset - Good Evening, sweet friends. It is time for another challenge at The Sweet Pea Stampers. Our challenge this fortnight is fantasy. Fantasy is what first drew me to Sweet Pea Stamper. I am enchanted by the mermaids and other fantasy images of Ching Chou Kuik. There is something about these images that just draw me in.

My image is ching-chou kuik- Spring Night  single rubber stamp. Also available in multi plate ching-chou kuik's sheet 18, plate 53

I colored her with Copics, then added lots of Stickles to her "legs" and a little bit to her scarf and head flowers. I used raspberry fritz Flower Soft to the cattails. 

My flowers are another of Susan's Garden Sixxits Dies. I used my Copics to add some deeper color to the center of the petal, then I shaped them using Susan's tool kit. The leaves are SU die. I finished off the card with a bow that was tied using my Bow Easy and my final touch was to use a stick pin from the stick pin swap that I recently did.
