Mermaid ~ Crafty Secrets

Good morning! It's so close to the weekend Thursday, and this weekend is a good one!
The Folk Festival is going on in Mtn. View. We go every year and browse around looking at the booths full of crafts, antiques and just about anything you can think of. Ohhh, the venders that sell all the yummy deep fried twinkies and oreos and funnel cakes and the corn dogs and....dang, I'm hungry! It's all so bad, but, oh so good! There is folk music on every corner, musicians come from all over to set up and play. If you're into folk music this is the place to be!

I pulled out my Crafty Secrets Mermaids set and made this card with the cute little mermaid in the set. She has the sweetest face, a little girl mermaid. There are several mermaids in the set along with sentiments and seashells, alot to work with!

I cut the card and layers with Spellbinders Labels 8 dies and the scalloped circle with my Marvy circle scalloped punch. I shabbyed up the edges with Ranger Distress Vintage Photo ink and a blending tool.
I painted Glossy Accents on the water and sprinkled on some glitter to give it more shine.
I hope you like her!

Supplies: Stamps - CS Mermaids. Paper - CS Pastel Paper Pad, SU! blue, GP white (Walmart). Ink - Ranger Distress Vintage Photo, Black Soot, Copic markers.
