Little Mermaid

I had a chance to craft tonight and I played along with the challenge at My Creative Time.  The Throwback Thursday challenge is to use a kid friendly cart to make a card with a kid theme.  I used three of my favorite child friendly carts for this one.  Once Upon a Princess, Twinkle Toes, and Create a Critter.  I have been wanting to make the mermaid on the Princess cart for a long time and this was the perfect opportunity to use her.  

The base of my card was made from Twinkle Toes.  I used the heart shape and welded it to make the base.

I saw this seahorse in Create a Critter and thought it would make a perfect friend to this little mermaid. I used the eye from a PKS face for her eye.

The craft cardstock was embossed using the Perfect Polka-dots embossing folder and I heat embossed the sentiment.  This cute sentiment came from the "My Favorite Sayings" set from MCT. 

I also added a tiny pearl necklace using liquid pearls.  That was really tricky to do because the beads had to be really small.  

Her cute face is from the Princess Face Assortment from PKS.  I added lots of dimension and some inking around the scalloped heart.  I did this with a Q-tip and a regular ink pad.  I tried to do this with a sponge at first, but I couldn't get into the small areas.  It was easy to get to them with the Q-tip.

Carts: Once Upon a Princess, Twinkle Toes, Create a Critter
Sentiment: My Creative Time- My Favorite Sayings
Faces: Peachy Keen Stamps- Princess Assortment
Paper: Recollections, Stampin' Up
