Make A Splash!!

Good Morning Oddies!!  So excited to be here with you today to introduce you to one of the newest members of the Odd Girl Family - Under The Sea Mae!!  You are going to fall in LOVE with this gorgeous clear set.  This new set is chock full of gorgeous designs, elements and sentiments.  Today I've used one of the stunning Mae Mermaids along with some sea shell elements and a sweet sentiment.
I did something completely different with my stamping this time.  I inked her onto watercolor paper with white craft ink and then heat set her with white embossing powder.  I masked my image and then sponged all around her with Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress Inks (can you tell I'm LOVING on my Distress Inks lately?!)  While the image was still masked, I lightly spritzed the entire background with my pearlized water.
I colored her skin with my Copics and then proceeded to paint her with my Distress Inks.  For her hair I used Barn Door and Fired Brick, along whit a hint of Spun Sugar.  And I used Peacock Feathers FOr her tail, top and decorative seashell hair clip. 

I used a micro pen to exaggerate her luscious eyelashes!  For my background I used a large background stamp inked with white acrylic paint.  I was in a texture "mood" if you will so it was calling to me.  I used my MFT Photo Corner Die-namics to embellish the top, left corners, new Washi tape and a Tim Holtz edge embossing folder for the bottom.
I inked, painted and trimmed out a few of the fun seashell elements that come with the set and added them to my creation using 3-D foam squares.  As a final touch, I added self-adhesive pearls scattered here and there.  I love how they almost look like bubbles floating around her!
 Thanks for popping by today!!  I know you're going to LOVE this release as much as I do!  Please be sure to pop by my fellow amazing design team members over at the SOG blog to see all of the absolutely STUNNING creations there are today!!

"Sea" (heheeh) you tomorrow!

Crafty Hugs!
