Simply Betty - July Betty

 And for my next Simply Betty Mermaid I am using Betty. How could I refuse that wee Dolphin. I just love Dolphins. I decided to make a gift bag this time. The extra for Betty is to use gems/rhinestones - I can do that. Although I think I went a bit mad with them. I see other people dotting gems around and think it looks cool, but I just didn't know when to stop. I kept thinking, just another one here. But I did manage to force myself to stop. And my wee Dolphin die cut - how cute is he. It's an old quickutz die that I've had for years. See I knew he would come back in (no not really, I'm just a hoarder and can't part with anything). The papers are downloads from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Carolina coast by Melissa Bennett. I cut the bag down to size and added some ribbon for handles and dotted some rhinestones about.
I am entering this into the Simply Betty Facebook Challenge. This is my second Mermaid. I have got another one finished and have one more to do. Hopefully I will manage to get it finished.
I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday.

Simply Betty - July Corinne

The July challenge over at Simply Betty's Facebook Challenge is to use these cute mermaids. I have used Corinne Mermaid first, but have managed to colour all four up. Just got to make the rest into something.  You can get all the images over here. And for this challenge if you enter using all four then you can get credit back for the price you paid to buy the next set. How cool is that. But - hey, I'm going with the one I have finished for now, but hopefully I will manage to finish the rest. For this one I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday. And the added extra for Corinne mermaid is to add glitter. I have added some, just don't think you can see it very well. I have added it to the water and the sand/stone she is sitting on to look like shiny water. Can you tell I have bought a new white pen, I had to add white dots to the tail. I would have had a glittery tail if I hadn't added them. Haha. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Vignette by Krystal Hartley. The dies are Marianne Design, think I will have to invest in some more nautical dies to go with the mermaids. I'll be getting fed up with these soon.
