Summer of Colour 5 : Week 1

Not having been very crafty of late, but really wanting to join in the fun over at Kristin's again this year, I thought a little ATC incorporating the 3 colours of two blues and one green would do the trick.

I was so taken by Jan's mermaid, I'd thought I'd like to do a mermaid ATC but having no such stamps, I just had to go with mermaid type hair!

I used 3 Distress inks, Salty Ocean (a must!), Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. Three Liquid Pearls Royal Blue, Juniper and Ivy Green. Plus some Patina Stickles. I stamped with Black Archival.

If I can manage an ATC each week that will be more crafting than I have done in months.

I remember a few years ago when we fought to be the first in line for the link up. Now both of us are way back in the pack. I sure like what you made, though. I really liked your thought process and of course, all those lovely products, none of which I own! I am truly impressed with the mermaid's hair!

Very pretty, BJ. Gorgeous colours, and I love the water spattered effect, and the liquid pearls look like bubbles! Fabulous.
