I've Got Whosits and Whatsits Galore:

So I decided to do a Mermaid card and I just so happened to have the perfect stamp set, it had just came in earlier this month.  I decided I wanted to do a card and use mainly my Stampin' Blends.  So I stamped the mermaid, seaweed and sand and then stamped them on some Avery Repositionable labels to use as masks.  I stamped the seaweed first and then masked it off.  Next I stamped the sand and masked it and then the mermaid and I masked her.  Once I had everything stamped and masked that needed to be it was time to remove the masks and do a little coloring.
  I started the coloring process with the mermaids tail and used Granny Apple Green and Old olive blends and then threw in a little mossy meadow just to add just a little more shading.  I then colored her body with ivory, bronze, and the color lifter.  Next I colored her hair with my daffodil delight, soft suede, and so saffron.  After she was done it was time to do the seaweed and the sand.  I used the same greens for the foreground and crumb cake and soft suede for the sand.
The water was done using Seaside Spray (light and dark), Night of Navy (light) and a tiny bit of the dark Night of Navy.  I worked it until I had the scene I wanted.  I built up each layer of the background until I had some depth to the image.  After all that was done I added a little white gel pen to the movement in the water and some clear wink of stella to her hair and tail to add a little sparkle.
I attached her to a Seaside Spray mat which was cut at 5 1/8 x 3 5/8.  My card base is night of navy that was cut in half at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.
I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and added a few rhinestones to finish the card off.  I added a piece of whisper white to the inside of the card so I had a place to write my message.  And that finishes my card for today.  If you need any of the supplies you can order them in my online store by clicking on the images below.

Happy Stampin'
