The Greeting Farm - July Release & Blog Hop

It’s the 15th, and that means the new JULY Stamps are NOW available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! Our first two sets called MERMAID KISSES and MERMAID GROTTO feature the cutest, most adorable mermaids plus a fantastic scene builder with the grotto. Our next set, FOXY FUN is super fabulous and perfect for those planner pages. And, of course, we couldn't forget about the busiest time of the year....summer, so we had to include MEGA-MINI SUMMER with some cool dudes and dudettes ready to hit the beach.

I used the adorable Mermaid Grotto stamps and coordinating dies to make my card.  I sponged distress inks onto Bristol card for both the ocean and sandy bottom, and another piece of Bristol card that I used for the bottle.  I stamped all the other images on Neenah and colored them with copics.  I fussy-cut the grotto and adhered it in the bottle.  I used the coordinating dies to diecut the remaining images and adhered them with foam tape to give the scene some dimension. 
Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E44, E43, E42, E41
Mermaid - RV66, RV55, RV63, RV52
