Your Next Stamp Challenge #21~Easel Card!

Hello!  It's time for another Your Next Stamp Challenge and this time the awesomely talented Cabio challenged us to make an Easel Card!  You can find directions for these HERE

 I decided to pull out this super cute Happy Days Mermaid set from Your Next Stamp and used some Basic Grey Kioshi dp.  Doesn't this green Leaf Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon make the perfect seaweed?!  Here's a close up of the coloring:

I had so much fun with this, and hope that you'll play along for your chance to win some prizes!

1. Winner – one lucky winner, chosen by, will win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Winner Blinkie to proudly display on their blog!

2. Top Pick – one lucky entry, chosen by Karen, will win $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Top Pick Blinkie to proudly display on their blog! (You must use a YNS stamp on your creation to be eligible to win the Top Pick prize).

Also since I haven't really had time to play, I'm entering this into a few of the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges on SCS.

Cool hair and very pretty card. I love the undersea scene and the awesome scheme!!

Wendy Ramlakhan said...

Perfect seaweed ribbon!! And I love that sparkly Aqua hair!!

Michelle said...

I don't understand these cards. Will the recipient know that it's an easel card? I checked out the tut...and it's confusing. So I'll just watch you make these. Great use for that BG paper too - and that great leaf trim is perfect for underwater vegetation!
