The Little Mermaid.....

Hello,

I hope you all had a great weekend! It was my daughter's birthday and her confirmation so we had a wonderful weekend I am so very proud of her and love her so much. 

I received the latest Stamp Club kit from Magnolia and couldn't wait to ink up this sweet Tilda. Isn't she so cute!


I have stamped her with Archival coffee onto Waterford water colour paper 300gsm hp. I added perfect pearls to her hair for more shimmer and Star Dust stickle glue for sparkle. I have distressed the background with weathered wood and tumbled glass. The die cut border is a Magnolia Doohickey die. The leaves are punched with a Leone Em punch. The butterflies are Martha Stewart. I have glimmer misted the flowers, leaves, paper and butterflies with iridescent gold glimmer mist. I heat embossed the shells with some glittery embossing powder and then distressed them with vintage photo.



Thank you so very much for looking and for all your comments I appreciate them so much a big thank you from me. Have a wonderful week!

love

Wow Kim, this is stunning, your colouring is beautiful as always and your embellies are so pretty, love how you've added perfect pearls to her hair.
I did chuckle when I saw yours as we've both inked up the same sweet Tilda first & put the same title, great minds etc lol.
Hope your daughter enjoyed her special weekend

Hi Kim! Wow, wow, wow! What a gorgeous mermaid Tilda! I just ordered this image yesterday and can't wait to receive her ... I think I have another new favorite, especially after seeing your gorgeous creation. All the amazing details and sparkle just really complete this card perfectly! I love it! (I'm trying very hard to visit all the DT girls' blogs - I've been so bad about this!! I wish there were a few more hours in each day! hugz, Mary)
