Sugar Nellie - Under The Sea Event

Good morning sugar fans! 
I know....I'm here on a Saturday with a Sugar Nellie post!!! It's for a special reason - this weekend Sugar Nellie are releasing 4 mermaid stamps in digital format that were originally only available in rubber. The stamps are available to buy at a promotional price of £2 each - so buy them while you can :) Click here to find them in the Funkykits (Home of Sugar Nellie) store.

Our launch coincides with Alyce's Kit & Clowder 6000th members party this weekend - the theme is 'Under The Sea'. The party starts later on today on their Facebook Group page - click on the logo below. Everyone is welcome - simply search for Kit & Clowder on Facebook and ask to join. Why not check out our mermaid stamps at Funkykits and join in with the fun at K & C - there's lots of prizes on offer.

So to get you into a watery mood, here my Sugar Nellie mermaid card for you today, and I've used one of the 'Under The Sea' digital stamps I mentioned.  Aren't they pretty!

Here's What I Did
My card base is 7" x 7". I die cut a frame from white card using 2 different sized rectangular dies. The background was created using distressing inks and water splattered randomly into it. and added to it. the inside of the frame along with a die cut glittery floral border.  The mermaids and turtle were coloured with Copics and added the card using foam tape. To finish off I added a few sequins and some glitter to her tail.

An absolutely wonderful card Janine.... I so love how you created that perfect background for her... you used fabulous shades - and the water droplets on it too.. just right for under the water! And then your mermaid.... just stunning! Love it all!

Ooh this is GORGEOUS Janine! I love these mermaids. I have the original rubber set, all of them, but I might just HAVE to get the digital too, as I do love to resize in digital. Gorgeous card design, love the seaweed and wee seastar. Fab finish with the sequins too. Hugs, Wends x
