I decided to get a bit nostalgic and pulled out Plate #1 to color up one of the very first Sweet Pea Stamps mermaids. I know some might consider the mermaid a bit risque.
All coloring was done with Copics, after I die cut the image, I used Distress Inks to darken the edges. The paper is Pool Water from Paper Pizazz and the gemstones are from Martha Stewart.
I left the card simple because I thought too many embellishments would take away from the image... ok, actually I was running behind and I was pleased with the way this oldie but goodie mermaid turned out :-).
Lots of new releases are at the Sweet Pea Stamps store, but don't forget to check out some of the older plates..... they are just as gorgeous, sassy and fun to color as all the other awesome stamps.
