Magical Mermaid Meets Tranquil Texture DSP for a Match Made Under the Sea - make your own with some FREE Blends AND FREE DSP!

Can you believe we are more than HALF way through July?  Which means I am half way through the THIRTY ONE card ideas for using the Designer Series Papers that are part of the Sale this month from Stampin' Up!  Several are Buy 3 Get 1 Free - and after all 31 ways to use them....you may just need to do the deal twice and get 8 different packs.  Sorry - I feel like your enabler, lol.
The reasons I LOVE today's card?  Well, they are many. 1)  The mermaid makes me miss my niece working her little ocean job on the East Coast.  So each time I color a little fin - I think of Kasey doing her thing under the sea! 2)  The Blends.  Grown Up coloring.  It is just good for the soul, right?  And of all the ways to color - using the Stampin' Up! Blends - it's my favorite.  3) I love using the DSP with stamp sets that it isn't meant to go with.  So many stampers just use the paper with the suites that it goes with.  Step out of your box peeps!  It will be ok!  Although, this is the Tranquil Texture paper - so it isn't a stretch. 4).  Our little mergirl doesn't have any dies of her own - but she works SO well with the Under the Sea die - a match made....under the sea!

I know I say it often - but if you want to see how to blend on a better screen - you will be able to make the screen larger and see better by going over to YouTube for this video to watch the video there - but see how truly easy this card is

I told you it was easy!  If you still have coloring questions - my Artistry Inspired Class in August will be just what you are looking for as we touch on some of the basics of Blends, Watercolor Pencils and coloring with Stampin Up inks.
Here is a close up of both her hair decoration - you saw just 2 glue dots secure it nicely - and the Blends coloring.   I used all NEW colors of Blends  I started with the light colors, blended over with the matching dark shade and then blended again with the light.

Each time  you color she will will look slightly different.  But every Mermaid should be that way!  Those of you coming to camp on Friday - this is one of your projects.

Remember I do have a couple of days left to my Christmas in July FREE BLEND offer that is in addition to my regular July Thank You gift - don't miss out!!  Details for that and all of the many July specials are below.  You can also find the shopping list for this project at the bottom of the post!

For EACH $40 you spend - you will get ONE FREE BLEND sent to you in early August with your regular July freebie!  (random color, will not be the new colors, I have some NEW blends, but not new colors ready to give away!).
You must use the HOST CODE when ordering - but that also qualifies you for the July THANK YOU Gift!!
This July everyone who places any order on my website and uses the Hostess Code
