Swimming By to Say Hi!

Hey y'all, its another crafty kinda night here in WA.  I just got these AWESOME Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and gotta tell ya, they are DA BOMB! I just love all the images and sentiments for summer cards.  So Girly, and perfect for Bunny Zoe's Crafts first challenge!
 I made a 5.5 x 5.5 square card using the sketch from Cute Card Thursday #117
Kraftin' Kimmie is sponsoring this month at Cute Card Thursday so mosey on over and try out the challenge.  YOU could win two of the Mermaid images! WOO HOO!!  The challenge over at Hand Full of Stamps is H2O and I'm guessin' a Mermaid in Water is good for that one. :-D    I used my Copics to color her and Stickles all over her entire tail to give her lots of glitter and shine perfect for the Drunken Stampers Challenge #21 color and bling!!  I cut her out and pop-dotted her to add depth.  
I used one of my Nesties and air brushed the background.  By changing the tip of your marker and lightly pressing your gun in "spurts" you can make those cool dots or spray. Here's a better close up.
They look like little bubbles surrounding her and her horsey friend. :-D  OK, so I don't actually own any stickers, but I am the greatest fan of Pile It On so I'm taking the liberty to enter over at PIO even though I didn't use a sticker for challenge#24. OOPS!!

Here are the Copics that I used.

I'm putting the finishing touches on a class that I'll be teaching at the Virtual Convention the beginning of July.  I'll offer the class here on the blog at the end of July so stay tuned.
