Hi everyone, and happy Tuesday! It's time for a new fun and fabulous challenge at Michelle Perkett Studios. You can create and design anything you want this week, as long as you use a MPS image. Michelle has been busy creating lots of new digital stamps, and you can find them and many more Here at her etsy store. One lucky random winner will get to chose one image of her choice.
This is one of Michelle's older images, and she is called "Just Breathe Mermaid". I wanted to make a christmas card, but not a traditional one, so I thought I would use a mermaid, and put her in a snow globe, I love how it turned out! Now my question to you is, "Do mermaids celebrate christmas?"
I colored her in christmas colors, using red so her flowers would look like poinsetta's. I used some pink Martha Stewart glitter on her tail, and added green pearls to the flower centers. I embossed the greenish/blue card stock with the Cuttlebug Swirls folder. I cut a piece of acetate into a circle then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Dot folder, and to create the snow, I used white opal pearl stickles on each raised dot.
I cut the snowflakes out with the Winter Wonderland cartridge by Cricut, then added pearls for the centers. The designer paper is by Little Yellow Bicycle, last years christmas papers.
