First up today is Beth's set, Vicki Mermaid.  How cute is that little mermaid?  here, let me show ya, lol!

Here she is!  Frolicking in the sea with her little fish friend!  I used some distress oxide inks for the 'waves and sponging for the clouds.  You can see of course, the sparkly goodness on her and the fish.  I used the Wink of Stella glitter pen in clear on them.  And another I made using the little seahorse:


I made a shaker card!  Super fun to make!  I also used some acetate...yes, I am the Queen Acetate, haha!  I do so love using it, but guess you can tell that!  :D  

Up next is Claire's new set, Cottage Garden. Here is what I did with it for today:



I masked, and sponged and colored and masked and  sponged...and ...well you get what I mean!  I had so much fun making this card!  I also added an overlay of colored vellum and cut with a circular opening.  The sides just looked like they were missing something an I didnt want to risk messing it all up by stamping something else there, so came up with this, lol!  Sharing my crazy thought process with ya! ha!  

And last but not least. the new incentive stamps Botanical Blocks.  I have not got to play with this one as much as a want yet  because I need to get something to play with it with and its in town!  LOL!  Anywayssss, here is what I have for today:

I did some watercoloring, lightly, on the background and the images are heat embossed and black glitter embossing powders...all sparkly!  :D

I really like what you created with the mermaid and the seahorse. The shaker with the seahorse looks awesome! Cute shaker elements. I really like what you created with the cottage garden. It looks soft and somewhere where I would like to visit.

Your sea cards are adorable and I'm loving the cottage card. The vellum is a perfect addition because it gives a softness to the scene almost like there's fog around the cottage and makes it seem fairy tale like.
