PP389 Mermaid Kisses

I love unicorns but have no stamps with them. One day maybe!
But so happy I do have a mermaid set! It is called Magical Mermaid.
I say often " If you can be a mermaid, be a mermaid!"
I love coloring her and do not mind fussy cutting her out either.
After stamping my mermaid in Memento Tuxedo Black,
I colored her with my Stampin Blends markers in Light Pink Pirouette,
Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.
But I think making this under the sea background was more fun!
I started with a piece of Sahara Sand cut 4" by 5 1/4".
  I stamped the shell bits on the bottom three times in Early Espresso. 
I stamped the seaweed a few times on each side then I started the sponging!
I used Sand on the bottom and then Bermuda Bay going heavy up the sides
 and light toward the center.
I stamped the sentiment in Espresso. I used the new 
Under The Sea framelits for the extra plants/seaweed plus
the little starfish.  I cut the starfish in Daffodil Delight and drew
the lines with an Espresso marker.
I finished it off by placing my background on a Bermuda Bay base.

Love the challenge and hope you can play along
