Sea You!!

Happy Friday, bloggy friends!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a card to share with you using my favorite die from the June release...and it's probably my all time fav Die-Versions die :)


So, you can probably see why she's my favorite!! I couldn't wait to use the beautiful new Whispers Dolphin Fun die featuring this beautiful mermaid :) She was colored with Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade for her hair, Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean for the waves and Pumice Stone for the dolphins. Her tail and and the insides of the dolphins were covered with sugar coating for a pretty sparkle.


She was placed over a Whispers Seaside Sunset die, colored with Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon and Pine Needles Distress Inks. A Whispers Circles Background was cut in plastic to represent bubbles. Sea You is from the Sail Away Stamp Set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. DL.ART - July Linky
2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show it Off Saturday
3. Doubleclick AKA AbusyBee #26 - From the Ocean

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

What an adorable mermaid Lisa! Terrific colouring and I love your background piece!! Have a lovely day! Hazel xx

Especially like the Dolphins. Will definitely have to ck the Whispers products out. Had blog issues yesterday. Updated my blog. My former BumbleBee background disappeared and think it is due to Cutest Blog place that I got the background from ran out of storage space and stuff was deleted. I updated to a background of my own. Please stop by my blog and let me know what you think.
