It's about the shoes

Happy Holiday Friday, to my friends in the U.S!

The July Kit for A Day for Daisies is a beautiful and clever images featuring mermaids and their longing for beautiful shoes!!!

Today I have used "Mermaid She Dreams":
This card is shimmery in real life due to the addition of Perfect Pearls (By Ranger)

  • She is colored with Copic markers then masked it.  
  • I inked "abstract roses" with peacock feathers (Tim Holtz), Cool Caribbean (SU!) and sea glass (Tim Holtz).
  • I stamped off the stamp on a scrap piece of paper
  • Then I misted the stamp with water
  • I stamped over the masked image with the stamp
  • Prior to removing the mask, I misted the image with an ink, water, and Perfect Pearls
  • After removing the mask, I wanted more shimmer so I added more droplets (water with Perfect Pearls)

There are more mermaids with "sparkle":
Thanks for dropping by my blog to day!  I hope to see you on the "A Day for Daisies" Blog for the "Add Sparkle" challenge!

Mermaid Dreams

"Now that she knew where he lived she spent many an evening and many a night on the water near the palace."
The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen 
This week the A Day for Daisies team are showcasing Tammy's beautiful images from The Little Mermaid

I am using the image from the quote above, My Palace On Land.

The image was colored with Copic markers on Bristol (smooth) paper.  

To highlight her tail, the shellfish and the setting sun on the water, I imitated "Wink of Stella" by just using water (very little), a paintbrush and Perfect Pearls. I also used some liquid pearls to put some pearls in her hair.

The background stamp is from Rubbernecker and the alpha stamps "DREAM" are from Stampin' Up!.

There are more beautiful The Little Mermaid creations on the blogs of my teammates:


Have you participated in the Paper Piecing/Piercing challenge on the A Day for Daisies Blog, yet??  You still have till noon on July 2nd to submit an entry!

Enjoy your Friday!
