Craft It Up & Link It Up Challenge - Anything Goes

To enter my 3 Year Blogaversary Giveaway, click HERE

Happy Monday and last day of March!! Another month bites the dust!! It's time for a new Craft It Up & Link It Up Challenge at Craftin Desert Divas. The theme for this challenge is an easy one and everyone's favorite...Anything Goes :) Our sponsors this week are: Fresh Squeezed Stamps - Mother Knows Best stamp set; Lovebug Creations - $10 gift card; Fleurette Bloom - $10 gift card.


I've been anxious to use the new Julie Nutting Sea Sallie Mermaid stamp so I inked her up for this challenge :) The tag is a Prima Doll Tag and it was covered with paper from K&Company's Happy Trails stack. Sea Sallie was stamped on old book paper and then she was lightly colored with a Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Marker and a TH Waterbrush. Her hair was colored with Distress Inks in Salty Ocean and Mowed Grass and blended with a waterbrush. The waves on the bottom are a Taylored Expressions Ride The Waves Border die. Sea Sallie is on an Action Wobble that my sweet friend Dee of Dee B's sent me.


I just love the Memory Box Hibiscus die!! You can't tell in the picture but the flowers, Sallie's hair and outfit were all brushed with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker. They really sparkle!! Sun Kissed is from Tara's new Summer Lovin' stamp set:


You can purchase it or the Punny orTeenage Dream stamps HERE.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - March Linky
  2. Every Day is an Occasion - March Linky
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Craftin Desert Divas to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge, then Craft It Up & Link It Up!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  17. My sweetest friend, I've been waiting for you to use this stamp! I thought of you the moment I first saw it and KNEW you'd be getting it! :o) You made her GORGEOUS! I love the paper and the colors you used throughout... just amazing. The tag itself is beautiful and I love the waves and flowers. I too love Wink of Stella, but it never shows up for me in pics either... such a bummer! Your sentiment choice couldn't be more summery and happy... what a lovely way to (almost) start April. Stunning work as always, my dear Lisa! I hope you have a happy day. :o)

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen

  18. Hey there, Sweet Sallie! Sea Sallie is just beautiful, and I love that you put her on a wobble spring.I just got some of those wobbly things, and then saw the "Shake your Booty" stamps from Art Impressions to use with them. I also love your hibiscus dies. The flowers look so pretty with Sallie. Have a great week, and a lovely Monday.

  22. Oh golly, is your mermaid ever AMAZING!!! I am sure you about flipped when you saw Sallie? She is beautiful and the colors, inking and the dimension on the tail is fantastic! SO pretty Lisa!
    Have a super day....:)
    So far no snow today..only a sleet, icy mixture so far! Which is also yuk but I think I would rather have that than more snow at this point! Hope the 6-8 inches misses us!

  24. So in love with this tag Lisa!! when i first saw this stamp I knew you would be adding it to your collection :). Question, you always stamp your dolls on "old book" paper. do you have the book paper glued to cardstock to make it sturdier??

  31. Fantastic idea to stamp this pretty sea beauty onto the book paper. I'm wondering if the tail was paper pieced? Great idea to use this nifty stamp as you did on this pretty tag. Loving the Hibiscus die. And your WoS showed up very sparkly in her hair band & could see a bit of it in the hair too. Love those markers. Great tag, Lisa. So very pretty. TFS & Hugs
