It's Summer

Please scroll down for the next 2 postings.
Happy Hump Day everyone! Today at Instyle Stamps, it's Wednesday Challenge day and the challenge is to create a card for the Summer. So what better image to use than Ariel don't you find her just adorable!! This was a fun theme!

I used the colors of my card to represent summer. The warmer and bolder colors. I have also added some pearls which I thought was appropriate since she does live under the sea.
Another finishing touch was adding some crystal lacquer to her fin, tail and seashell bra. Just before it dried, I had sprinkled some glitter to make her shiny. Hope you will join us for the challenge. All you need to do is create a card with an ISS image, follow the theme and upload your card to THIS post. There will be one winner chosen at random to win a digital image of their choice! Have fun and can't wait to see what you create!
Card Details:
Stamp: In Style Stamps
Paper: Basic Grey Marrakkech, Pacific Point CS, Neenah CS
Inks: Copics
Accessories: nestabilites, pearls, chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, copic airbrush system
