Sweet Stamp Stop August Release and Celebration

Welcome to the Sweet Stamp Shop second release day sneak peek!!  I'm so excited to share my projects with the Sweet Stamp images...they are so adorable!!  This 'sweet' image is no exception, isn't this mermaid so cute!?  It's from the new set, Under the Sea, which includes the images shown on my card plus a few more...Can't wait for the full review!
For this card I used the Mini Ringlets stencil from The Crafters Workshop to create the background behind the mermaid (I thought it looked like bubbles!)  I used Distress Inks and a blending tool to add the ink color and then just a hint of silver Stickles for a little bling.  The image was colored with Copic markers and I used a colorless blender, also from Copic, to add a bit of texture to the mermaid's tail.  My cardstock was embossed with Sizzix embossing folders.  Fun stuff!!
