You are Mermazing!

Hello lovely people,

As this posts, I will be heading home from a week in Cornwall (near Penzance)  and the weather has been mostly good with quite a bit of sunshine so we did lots of walking and sightseeing.

Oh, and ate a cream tea almost every day...of course!

Today I have a Dies to Die For DT card for you and before I left for holibobs I just had to squeeze in a little play with my mermaid stamps from MFT.  These are from the May release and I already have my June release goodies on the way - lol!

I've also used several elements from one of the MFT Blueprints set.

Mermaids are perfect for trying out different hair colours and I also LOVE colouring their tails to give a scaly look :-)

I cut out the mermaid and rock with the matching dies and layered them together for my scene; maybe next time I'll also try colouring the background but I do like the quirky look of the DP.

The frame was created by using 2 separate stitched circle dies and then I stacked 3 frames together for depth.

I have always admired the scattered sequins on other people's cards but never really felt like I could use them effectively on my own...until now!

I was really happy with the sequins on here and it didn't even take me long to place these; it does help to have REALLY pretty sequins - lol!

Cream teas, especially of the Thunder and lightning variety, are compulsory in Cornwall surely...so calories don't count!! Such a sweet card Kat and I love the dimension of the frame xx
