Sweet Stamps- Anything Goes

This week at Sweet Stamps our Challenge is Anything Goes!

*** This week, we are having a Blog Hop with the Team from Pinque Peacock- Part one of the Blog Hop is today- and tomorrow will be another 'Hop'!***  
  
 You already know Sweet Stamps is like a candy store filled with Papercrafting goodies. Let me tell you a little bit about Pinque Peacock Shop. The shop was launched last October, and is full of goodies like Beaded Stick Pins, Fabric Covered Buttons, and Handmade Fabric Flowers.

 Speaking of Goodies- both stores are offering Prizes!  Sweet Stamps is offering a $20.00 spending spree to one lucky hopper (hop on over to the Anything Goes challenge) and Pinque Peacock is offering a NEW  'Nana's Pillowcase' Product Bundle (including Fabric Covered Buttons, Fabric Flowers, and coordinating Stick Pins).
 ***I will be offering a Technique Junkies "Shape It"  CD- that is where the directions for my Fishbowl project came from. In order to win my prize, just leave a comment - simple!  I will post the winner this week on Friday night. ***
  If you did not arrive here from Jessie's Blog, then you will want to go back to Kendra's Blog- which is stop 1 of 15 for this hop. Also, tomorrow's hop lineup will be posted on the main blogs - please visit for all of the direct links (for both days).

OK- on to my project!

 I made this card for a neighbor that was Ariel in The Little Mermaid play- she did an amazing job!

  This is called a fishbowl card, and as I mentioned, the directions are from the "Shape It" CD from Technique Junkies. There is a layer of embossed acrylic in front of the mermaid. I colored the Mermaid with Copic Markers- she is cut out and adhered to the acrylic layer inside. I used Shades Die inks (spots Reflecting Pool and Tidal Wave) DTP on the background, and then added Sea Foam Creative Inspirations Paint dabbed on lightly over that. The seahorse die cut also has Sea Foam CI paint over the top.
  Roxie on the Sweet Stamps DT recently told us about putting heat on ribbon to crinkle it, so I gave that a go- and added my beautiful Decorative Pins by Pinque Peacock to the center of the bow.
 Here are the Sweet Stamps supplies I used on my card:
Shaleen Mermaid HERE
Fish Trio HERE
Black Tuxedo Memento Die Ink HERE
Shades Die Ink- Spots - HERE
Copic Markers HERE

Spots Embossing Folder HERE
