The only downside of having them, was that I received some much wanted mermaid stamps (by Amy Young /Sweet November Stamps) just before my visitors arrived... and I had to put them away the entire weekend - the stamps, not the visitors;P -and be social instead... lol... and then I had work on Tuesday, so it wasn't until last night I got to sit down and play with my new stamps.
It was hard to decide wich one I wanted to try out first, but I decided on Shimmer Redkelp and her sweet otter Otto. Isn't she the most gorgeous stamp? I'm sooo in love with these mermaids (I got a couple more that I haven't played with yet...). I knew from the first time I saw them that I needed to own a few...
I have used Promarkers to colour in with (Cocoa, Cinnamon, Blush, Vanilla, Dusky pink, Ivory, Blossom, Cool aqua, Duck egg, Mandarin, Pumpkin, Apricot and Blender). The sentiment was sent to me in the post a while back, so I don't know anything about it. I've also used a MS punch, some ribbon and brads. The flower is made with one of my crocheted flowers (it's so much fun to crochet these, and it only takes a few minutes. I can write down the pattern if anyone is interested), some torn and distressed book pages and a brad.
