FabFri117 You Float My Boat

I have been wanting to use this is my newest one
called Message In A Bottle.
I stamped the bottle in Soft Sky. The boat in the bottle in Early Espresso.
I stamped the mermaid in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I water colored the with my aqua painter the sails and the hair with So Saffron.
I colored her skin with Blushing Bride, her hat and shells with Sweet Sugarplum
and finally, her tail with Soft Sky.
I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso on a strip of Soft Sky.
I cut the boat and mermaid out with Layering Circle dies
and arranged on a piece of Naturally Eclectic DSP.  
I layered some Night of Navy card stock behind then 
onto a piece of thick Whisper White card stock for a base.
I finished it off with a few glitter dots...kinda look little bubbles, right?
I love the way this card turned out!

Hope you can join the fun over at
