CMS - Under the Sea

The talented designer Kathy Zaban has just released a new set of stamps over at Copic Marker Scrapbooking. They are called Under the Sea and it's a great set including a couple of mermaids, several fish and the cutest sea horses... Hop over to the site Making Our Mark and check them all out as well as some great inspiration from our design team - there is even a FREEBIE over there as well.
I used the cute clown fish on the bottom card - and made it into a fish bowl with a cute sentiment... It's simple, but I thought it turned out cute.
On the top card I used one of her mermaid stamps. I had already chosen the papers I wanted to use on this card, so I matched the papers with my Copic colors. I thought it turned out so wonderfully rich and vibrant. I just love the color's on this card. I added some distress ink just to help match the papers a little and to add some depth to the edges of each of the layers of paper. Some trim and a bubbly bow out of a beautiful sheer ribbon finished it off.
I will be entering this mermaid card in the following challenges:
Make It Monday - #78 - Linky party
Crafty Catz - #121 - Starts with B - bow, blue, bird
CMC Copic - Bright/bold colors
Simon Says Stamp - 3 different papers
