Mermaids Galore & a new car!!

I am happy to say, I just bought a new car.  How exciting.  I got a 2010 Kia Soul and I LOVES it.  

But now, back to card making.  I have recently made two mermaid cards. I just love how they turned out. I have been working hard on coloring hair with my copics and I am so excited about how well they look. I purchased these rubber stamps from C.C. Designs from the Sweet November line.

The embossing folder from the first image is from Tim Holtz. The shells are OLD and from my ancient stash. They were originally brown and ugly, which is why it probably too me so long to use them. Now I love them and barely have any left. I added a few dew drops to show her breathing bubbles and added pretty various green seed beads and glass for fun

Here's a close up of my little Ariel and her fun colored fin.

Sorry for the picture taking on this one. But Ariel is quite similar to the first image just with a different layout. I just LOVE that Martha Stewart shells punch. The embossing folder behind my little mermaid is the same as the first card. The main background is a Cuttlebug folder.
