Hooked Mermaid

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well & you have something fun planned for the July 4th weekend! Today I'm using the pretty little Mermaid & 4 in 1 Seashells. After coloring & fussy cutting her, I had an idea to pair her w/ the die cut seahorse & the Hooked on You greeting. I wanted everything shimmery & sparkly, like I imagine an underwater world would be. So I dug thru my stash & found some shimmery pearl card stock in this pretty lt. teal color. I die cut the seahorse & waves & added a some blue w/ a Copic. 
You can see the shimmer in picture below. I also stamped the Versatile Bg with white Stazon inside the circle opening. Then I wanted to stamp the seashells on the same card stock but I had a lot of trouble finding an ink that would stick in the color I wanted. Nothing seemed to work..Memento, Brilliance, Distress ink..nothing would stick & the only colors of Stazon I have are black & white. Finally got out my trusty old Ancient Page & it worked! Yay! After stamping, I fussy cut the shells then I added some stickles to most everything. 

The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great 4th of July weekend! And don't forget to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge...Splatters (any kind, stamped, sprayed, splashed...we're easy)!
