She Sells Sea Shells...

How dreamy is Sassy Mermaid Molli?  La La Land did not disappoint with the latest release.  I know you have been seeing a lot of different dies and stamps from this last release and I hope your are enjoying the inspiration as much as I have enjoyed creating them!


A few key pieces that I used to create this card are the Sea Shells and the Fishing Net dies.  I wondered when someone would create a super awesome net and look its finally here!  The shells were created by layering them twice...the first cut is die cut out and the second layer I left the pieces in.   I added some chunky glass glitter from Stampendous to the net to create a little more texture and it brought in that perfect shimmer to the card.  I need to use this product more often...it's delicious!!

When I created this card I didn't have anything in particular in mind for the final piece.  I started by coloring her skin normal skin tones.  I chose red hair....then I picked my papers.  Once the papers were chosen I colored the rest of her to match.  I wanted to carry the green a little more into her skin tones so I went back over the original skin tones with the greens to tie it all together.  I think it makes her a little more organic in feel.  I didn't feel the card needed a sentiment but could add one if the special occasion comes up.  I will leave her for now.
