Try It Out Tuesday #5, Mermaid Lisa
Who doesn't love a mermaid? No matter how many times Nichole played "The Little Mermaid", I never got tired of seeing that beautiful creature floating around in the water with her long hair swirling around her and the sparkle of the light on the shells and items below the surface.
This sketch is by the wonderful, Suzanne Dean, of Scrapbitz and the Design Team Leader at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I love this sketch and plan on using it over and over! My stamp is Mermaid Lisa by Rubber Romance and I absolutely adore her! I colored her with distresed inks and then with mint shimmerz and highlighted her with crystal stickles and used Glossy Accents on the bubbles. I love the pearls by Keiser and I added the ribbon and hatpin because it had pearls on it! Love all those jewels from under the water! I used my threading water punch for the scalloped edge and highlighted the bottom with some shells. Oh, I want to be where she is!
You can get all the highlighted items from Susana's store. She's got some great, new items in there so stop over and take a look around. Also, don't forget about the new illustrator and line of stamps that she's going to be revealing! Take a look over at the store blog and the PCP group for all the details! Great fun to be had and who doesn't want some extra dollars to spend with the way the economy is? Every little bit helps so go over and participate!
