Mermaid Anya & Bloggers Challenge 70


Yeah! My new Pink Poison stamps arrived yesterday and I got to work on stamping! I had to make a little gift holder for a party Tristan is going to today and also it's Friday (okay, 1 day late) for Blogger's Challenge. This was for a pre-order so they will not be available until Nov. 1rst but you can see some sneaks at Marie's blog.


I came across this template from Andrea Walford and thought it would make a perfect little jewelry holder which is what I needed. This was so easy to make although the cover with acetate was a little more difficult as it was hard for me to see the score lines, but overall, I ended up making 2 quick ones (one I will share later). I also added a little bellyband with some ribbon to it. The box was made using some of my new Granola Basic Grey paper. We also got her a little coin purse which I wanted to put the jewelry in in the box but it was to big


I used a simple layout for the birthday card with Mermaid Anya. I colored her using my refills & Aquapainter as well as my colored pencils. I accented her hair with some silver stickles. I also added some primas with silver brads and rhinestone. I layered my Basic Grey Granola paper (which I thought this sheet looked like shells) on Regal Rose and Vintage Violet.

Sorry for the horrible lighting in the pictures, it's been dreary and rainy here but is supposed to be a lot nicer today (hope so, we are headed to football in a few minutes).
